Supports for English as an Additional Language

It is important that the needs of all students are met, including those who are new to Saskatchewan and are learning English as an Additional Language (EAL).

Learners of EAL may be newcomers to Saskatchewan or local speakers of languages other than English. The Ministry of Education provides funding and support to school divisions, while school divisions provide support directly to students. At the time of enrolment, students may be assessed by school divisions for school readiness, including language ability.

Students receive EAL instruction and support in inclusive classrooms to help them in achieving their language and learning goals. EAL and immigration documents, and information on Prekindergarten to Grade 12 education for newcomers are available in many languages.

EAL Assessment Supports

An EAL Assessment Toolkit, along with other supports, has been provided to school divisions to assist in determining the readiness skills of newcomer learners.
The Ministry of Education partnered with school divisions in the development of the toolkit.

EAL Assessment Funding

The ministry is pleased to continue supporting school divisions with the initial and ongoing assessment of newcomers through the EAL Initial Assessment Fund. School divisions are provided application information directly to apply for the per student funding based on the number of newcomer students assessed during each school year.
