Salem State University will offer English language learners from the Salem community a chance to strengthen their academic skills through a recent $128,227 grant from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Education. With the funds, the university plans to hold an academy for English language students this summer. Teachers from the city’s public schools will work alongside Salem State faculty who have been trained for the program and community educators from local organizations to offer the literacy program. In addition to providing enrichment for students, the program is intended to help enhance the English language instructional skills of participating city teachers.
