Jenny Leroux, District 196
Camp Propel

Jenny Leroux (ISD 196 ESL Lead Teacher) will introduce Rotarians to Camp Propel, ISD 196’s summer school program, and describe how their donation is helping provide targeted English language development (ELD) instruction to English learners.  Jenny worked closely with the coordinator of Camp Propel and leaders in the district’s technology, literacy, and math departments to create standards-based content and develop a distance learning format that will be both engaging and meaningful for all students.  About  1/3 of Camp Propel students are identified as English learners, and being able to offer ELD instruction for the first time in Camp Propel this summer provides the equitable access to instruction that supports English learners’ diverse learning needs.
