Secondary ESL Program

The secondary ESL program provides academic support to ELLs through ESL course offerings, sheltered English content area courses, mainstream support, and tutorial support. ESL course offerings are offered in three levels—beginning, intermediate, and advanced. The beginning level ESL program is the most ESL intensive, with ELLs participating in approximately 75% of the day in ESL. A student’s participation in ESL courses decreases to approximately 50% of the courses at the intermediate level and to 25% or less at the advanced level. Students may participate in tutorial support in order to support achievement in content area classes. The Dual Language program is an option available at Beveridge, Norris, Marrs and South.

The ESL curriculum is aligned to grade-level standards in the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking and some content areas and the K-12 English Language Proficiency Standards.

ESL courses include a focus on skill development in reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, listening, speaking, study skills, and cultural competency. In addition, the ESL curriculum includes preparation for mainstream content area study. Courses with this focus align with standards for the particular area of study, including math, science, social studies and technology.
