    Information

    English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) instruction is provided to Limited English Proficient (LEP) students based on their level of English language proficiency.  ESOL instruction must integrate instructional techniques of teaching English as a second language (ESL) with the curriculum requirements of English Language Arts.
     
    Teachers work with classroom teachers to develop fluency and literacy in the English language for pre-identified students of other languages.
