English Learners


to Faribault Public Schools!

Our school district is committed to offering the highest quality of educational services to all students, including English language learners. The Department of EL Services administers programs for English language learners with the goal of developing English language proficiency and achieving state content-area standards, while simultaneously valuing their native languages and cultural backgrounds.


The Faribault Public Schools' programs for English learners strives to enable students of limited English proficiency to develop their intellectual, cultural, and self-concept skills necessary for success at Faribault Public Schools and for their future. The students will accomplish this development in an atmosphere of understanding, cooperation, and support.
