    RCPS provides comprehensive programs and services for students who are English Learners (EL). Culturally, ethnically, and racially diverse, our strength as a school division is rooted in this diversity.

    RCPS hosts EL Parent/Guardian University events throughout the school year. Stay tuned for more information about events for the 2023-24 school year!

    Volunteers with the EL Parent/Guardian University pose for a photo in the spring of 2023.
