We encourage you to take some time to read through our important student documents.
We designed the Student Services page to help you find information on Wickenburg Unified School District’s focus on creating A+ schools and the programs that assist us in moving students to the next academic level.
We identify students for ELL services through a home language survey and a state developed language assessment (AZELLA). Once identified, students are either placed in an English Language Development (ELD) classroom, or an Individualized Language Learner Plan (ILLP) is created to guide the classroom teacher in meeting the student’s language development needs. Placement in services depends on the number of students qualifying. The services provided focus on providing instruction in the development of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills as well as vocabulary and grammar in the English language. To ensure that all students in the program learn English quickly and to comply with state guidelines, we provide instructions in English.
Is your current address a temporary living arrangement? Is your temporary address due to loss of housing or economic hardship? Are you homeless? Are you an accompanied youth? Do you know someone who may be in need of help? There may be help for you and your family with enrollment in school, educational placement for at-risk students, coordinating community social services, and basic school supplies.
To learn more, contact your school counselor or call Allison Pacheco at (928) 684-6700. We’ll help you enroll your child and identify community services available to assist you. Our goal is to ensure that McKinney-Vento* eligible students have educational opportunities equal to those of their non-homeless peers. See the important documents sidebar (at the right) for more information.
