Students in grades 6 - 12 who have not yet reached fluency in English may attend one of the district's International Newcomers' Academy (INA) programs. At the middle school level, INA is a daily, two-hour morning program located at Washington Middle School that emphasizes instruction in academic vocabulary, basic language skills, reading and writing skills and more. Students are transported from their home school to the INA each morning and return to their school by lunch. For the remainder of the day, students participate in mainstream classes.
At the high school level, students attend the INA for three hours each afternoon at Bosse High School. Students are enrolled in English as a New Language classes and in sheltered U.S. History class or a basic skills development program. Students enrolled in the INA still have the opportunity to earn high school credits, including credits toward graduation. Transportation is provided to and from the program and academic tutors are provided as needed.
