EL Credentialing

Welcome to Two Rivers Public Charter School’s 4th Street elementary and middle school EL Education credentialing portfolio! Since our inception in 2004, Two Rivers Public Charter School’s 4th Street campus has remained rooted in the Two Rivers mission:

To nurture a diverse group of students to become life-long active participants in their own education, develop a sense of self and community, and become responsible and compassionate members of society.

In addition, we continue to support this mission through the following goal:

When students graduate from Two Rivers they will have the cognitive and social skills to succeed in high school and college so that they are positioned to have rich and varied options for their future.

Our commitment to the core practices of EL Education in realizing this mission and goal has made our students’ successes across all three EL Education’s dimensions of student achievement possible. This portfolio is designed to illustrate both those accomplishments and how we continue to grow to improve the educational outcomes for all of our students.

In 2014, our original 4th Street campus was one of the first schools in the country to be credentialed by EL Education. A recognition that speaks to our high level of implementation of the EL Education core practices and our relentless pursuit of a broader vision of success for our students. This level of implementation is reflected in our annual EL Education implementation reviews and in the performance of our students as evidenced in our EL Education credential data profile.
