English Language Educators of the Cape & Islands

The English Language Educators of the Cape & Islands (ELE-C&I) is a regional group for Pre K-12 ELL educators on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket. The group became a MATSOL SIG in October 2013.

The goal of the ELE-C&I SIG is to provide ongoing support to ELL educators, on the Cape and Islands, as they implement state and federal mandates for English learner education. Some of our activities include:

  • Sharing resources, such as forms, curriculum, progress reports, etc. 
  • Exploring topics on ELL/SPED, CPR and compliance issues, RETELL, AMAO, ELD curriculum, WIDA, strategies, SEI vs. ELD, SLIFE, etc. 
  • Updates MA ESE and policy changes
  • Guest speakers and presenters

Meetings are open to current MATSOL Members at no charge.
