Logan City School District (LCSD) is creating the School-Based Language Learning Centers for At-Risk Youth Project. This project is designed to encourage at-risk K-12th grade ELL/ESL students to stay in school and to reduce juvenile delinquency among ELL/ESL students by providing them targeted instruction and mentoring. The project will serve students with limited English proficiency (ELL/ESL) in LCSD elementary, middle, and high schools. Many of the ELL/ESL students of the Logan City School District (LCSD) face considerable obstacles and risk factors, not the least of which is limited English proficiency. LCSD ELL/ESL students will have the opportunity to participate in focused afterschool and summer activities designed to provide the academic and social support they need. The goal of the project is to improve student behavior, increase student learning, and facilitate assimilation of ELL/ESL students into the broader student body. Performance will be measured by the percentage of youth who complete program requirements; percentage of youth with whom an evidence-based program/practice was used; percentage of youth who offend/reoffend; and percentage of youth who exhibit desired change in targeted behaviors.
