New English Learner resource available

The Mississippi Department of Education’s (MDE) Office of Intervention Services is announcing the completion of a new resource for supporting English Learners (EL), Adapting Classroom Assessments for English Learners.

The resource is the result of work from the MDE’s Refugee and Newcomer Working Groups.  The groups are made up of educators from around the state who have dedicated their time and efforts to help develop resources to better support EL students.  This resource provides educators with strategies for adapting classroom assessments to better assist ELs in demonstrating what they know about taught concepts.

For questions regarding this or other supports for English Learners, please contact Sandy Elliott at
