English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes are available to any Limited English Proficient (LEP) student in grades K-12 for whom English is not the primary language and for whom academic support is needed to meet passing requirements in general education classes.
ESOL students receive an average of one to three hours of English content-based instructional support per day following the current research-based instructional program models. Services may include flexible grouping, inclusion, transitional bilingual content, with sheltered and/or adjunct classes offered on the secondary level. The instructional resource support is provided until a student can meet passing requirements independently in general education classes.
Bilingual support services (translating and interpreting for school purposes such as parent, teacher or student conferences) are made available on an as-needed basis by all schools, departments, or offices. ESOL students represent approximately 120 languages and cultures from throughout the world.
