English As A Second Language (ESL)

Our ESL program provides services to students whose dominant language is not English.  It is our responsibility as a Local Education Agency (LEA) under the Title 22, Chapter 4, Section 4.26 of Curriculum Regulations to provide services to every student who is limited English proficient (LEP) or an English language learner (ELL).  The goal of our ESL program is to teach ELL students whose first language is not English, the acquisition of English language skills.   The ESL program administers instruction in social and academic English.  ESL teachers plan and instruct English language learners using a standards-based framework.
