Students identified as beginning (HILT A) or intermediate (HILT B) English language learners study in the HILT Program. These students receive their core instruction (reading, language arts, social studies, science and math) from a HILT teacher. Students may enroll in HILT math or mainstream mathematics, as well as physical education and elective classes.
HILTEX is for those students who have successfully completed the HILT Program or are identified as advanced English language learners. They generally receive their reading/language arts, and social studies classes from a HILTEX teacher and then study in grade appropriate classes for science, physical education and electives.
Students exit the HILT/HILTEX program based on criteria such as passing criterion-referenced tests, writing samples, Degrees of Reading Power (DRP) tests, and class performance.
