We have students at all stages and levels at Big Creek Elementary. Students receive instruction primarily through the pull out model, a few students are served through inclusion.
Students are assessed yearly, in January, with the ACCESS test. The results are received in May and are used to determine the level and type of assistance needed by each student. We are very proud of our ESOL students! They contribute to the uniqueness of Big Creek Elementary!
