The Alhambra School District has a McKinney-Vento program that provides rights and services to children and youth experiencing homelessness, which includes those who are sharing the housing of others due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason. If you enroll in the Alhambra Elementary School district and if your child or children are experiencing homelessness, please contact your school office for additional information.
The Mission of the Johnson-O’Malley program (JOM) is to address the unique cultural needs of American Indian students attending the Alhambra School District through a supplemental program of services planned, developed, and approved by the Indian Education Parent Committee. The JOM program provides school supplies, tutoring, parent involvement, and membership to an extracurricular club. The extracurricular club provides opportunities for students to learn about their Native American culture and includes sharing book readings, crafts, cooking, field trips and more! If you are interested in this program please contact your school office to speak with your school’s Indian Education Liaison.
The Alhambra School District offers an intensive English language program for students not yet proficient in English. Classroom instruction focuses on English language acquisition in the areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing. In addition, language acquisition is built through shared strategies and supports in content areas (i.e. science, social studies and math). All classroom instruction is in English designed to accelerate the learning and application of the English language. Teachers celebrate and embrace the use of the child’s native language as it relates to the content. The subject matter will be taught in English, and children in this program learn to read and write in English.
Imagine Language & Literacy is an adaptive learning solution that accelerates reading and language proficiency for students in grades PreK–8. Designed to supplement core literacy instruction, Imagine Language & Literacy provides instruction and practice in all four domains of literacy—reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
