English Language Learners

The ELL / ESOL program is offered to all limited English proficient students who meet the testing eligibility criteria. This program aids in the success of a limited English proficient student in an English-speaking classroom. The goal is to have students succeed in all four language skills (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) both socially and academically and to be able to understand and function successfully in American culture. Immersion in an English-speaking environment with school personnel will produce the results necessary. The ELL / ESOL teacher shall have the ELL / ESOL endorsement issued by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GAPSC), and the ELL / ESOL class is limited to the maximum size specified in State Board of Education Rule 160-5-1-.08 Class Size.

Service may be provided through the following allowable delivery models: pullout, scheduled class period, collaborative teaching, sheltered courses, and resource center and/or ELL/ESOL laboratory and/or cluster center program.
