English Learners

Providing the assistance students need for success in school

The English Learner (EL) program in SoWashCo Schools follows governmental and professional guidelines to support students who are learning English as a Second Language (ESL). 

Licensed ESL teachers and support staff, in collaboration with classroom and content area teachers, promote grade-appropriate learning in all academic coursework while developing students' English language proficiency. EL students are monitored and assessed to observe their progress in English language speaking, listening, reading and writing. This information, along with consultation from a student's teachers and parents, helps determine the necessity and level of EL support.
