ESL Program

  • English as a Second Language (ELL) Education Program Benefits:

    There are benefits that will be gained by your son/daughter when he/she participates in English as a Second Language (ESL) education program. Because your son/daughter hears a language other than English at home and/or speaks a language other than English with peers, he/she would benefit from intensive English instruction. A teacher in the English as a Second Language (ESL) education program is trained on how to teach the English language using special materials, teaching materials, and is sensitive to the individual needs of a student who is learning English. The teacher in an ESL program collaborates with other teachers who may also have your son/daughter in class. This is necessary so that your son/daughter will meet all of the required state standards expected of all students. If a student is also enrolled in a special education program, the teachers collaborate so that instruction is provided according to the student’s Individual Education Plan (IEP). ARD Committee in conjunction with LPAC will determine appropriate instruction.
