The Gresham-Barlow School District currently serves 1,640 English Language learners. The Gresham-Barlow School District (GBSD) works to inspire and empower students, supporting equitable outcomes and experiences for all learners. We focus on the strengths of our diverse students to support socioculturally competent graduates who will thrive in an ever-changing global community. The multilingual learners program supports emergent multilingual students as they develop English language proficiency, celebrating and affirming the rich experiences and skills that culturally and linguistically diverse students bring to our schools and communities.
Our teachers meet the academic, linguistic, and social needs of a diverse student population through integrated language and content instruction. Classroom teachers and specialists collaboratively plan, teach, and assess to ensure emergent multilingual student success. Teachers and specialists share designated time to co-design lessons with clear roles, expectations, and supports. Students, especially those who are linguistically and culturally diverse, are at the center of our conversations and decisions—every time, every day.
