English Learners (ELs) are those students in Wyoming schools whose primary language is other than English. English Learners enter Wyoming schools with a variety of language backgrounds, educational experiences and levels of English proficiency. Wyoming State educational agencies, local education agencies and schools are held accountable for increasing English proficiency and core academic content knowledge of English learners.

Wyoming is part of the WIDA (World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment) Consortium, a member-based organization, which provides a flexible suite of tests suitable for all students in Grades K-12 who have been identified as Active English language learners. WIDA is dedicated to the design and implementation of high standards and equitable educational opportunities for English language learners which offers programming for identifying and annually assessing the English language development of its English learners.
