ESL - English as a Second Language
The primary goal of the ESL program is to increase the English language proficiency of English Language Learners (ELLs) so that they can meet state and district academic standards, fully and successfully participate in all mainstreamed classes at an age-appropriate grade level,
and thus be successful in school.
To meet these goals, the objectives of ESL instruction are the development of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in English, and the provision of an educational environment that helps the ELL understand and cope with a new culture. An ESL program is provided in each district school where at least one student attends who is in need of ESL instruction.
