Once a student has completed an orientation session, weekly instructional meetings will be scheduled.
The time it will take to complete preparation for the HiSET exam depends on many factors including a student's previous academic experience, commitment, and follow-through on assigned tasks.
In order to complete the HiSET exam in a timely manner, students are expected to attend scheduled instructional meetings as well as complete their assignments outside of class.
|The Bozeman Adult Learning Center's ESOL classes are designed to meet the individual language and cultural understanding needs of non-native English speakers.
Classes are offered at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, and include speaking, listening, pronunciation, grammar, reading, and writing practice.

Also available are advanced civics and citizenship classes for eligible students.

Welcome to the Bozeman Public School District Multilingual Learner/English Learner (ML/EL) web page.
As part of the asset-based belief system implemented by WIDA, we stand by the new term Multilingual Learner to describe all students who come in contact with and-or interact in languages in addition to English on a regular basis. Multilingual is a strengths-based label that recognizes students who have the ability to become bilingual or multilingual through instructional support, and it acknowledges the ability to speak more than one language as a highly valuable asset to be celebrated.
In the Bozeman Public Schools, we honor our ML/EL student's ability to become multilingual through research based instructional support that both supports their English language acquisition and provides access to content subject matter while honoring their heritage languages.
