ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE

 

English as a Second Language

English as a Second Language (ESL) programs are designed to assist students in communicating effectively in English, both in and out of school.

A number of resources and services are available to help limited English proficient (LEP) students demonstrate their ability to understand, read and write English in order to function and be successful in school and in American society.

Upon registration at the school, a student’s parent or guardian should indicate the child’s primary language (the one spoken at home). Using that information and any existing school records, school staff alert the ESL teacher assigned to that school of the need for proficiency testing and possible placement into the ESL Program for services.

Please contact Ms. Tina Smith at (804)652- 4652 for more information.
