...ner Services (45.23%), English Proficient (54.77%), and Free or Reduced Lunches (49.40%). Lutie Lewis Coates Elementary School consists of many ELLs and many of these students are part of the Free and Reduced Lunch Programs. In Miss Kane’s first grade class at Coates Elementary School, 17 out of her 20 students are considered ELLs. Having this many ELLs in one classroom was very normal at Lutie Lewis Coates Elementary School since the neighborhood around the school had many families who spoke Spanish as their first language. Many of the parents who sent their children to Lutie Lewis Coates Elementary School did not speak English and relied on their son or daughter to communicate to their teacher. Although this is the case, the school did provide an English as a Second Language teacher to help the student become proficient in English and prevent any miscommunication.
