English as a Second Language

The ESL program in Jefferson County offers a combination of ESL classes, both pull-out and inclusion, for all limited-English proficient students.  Additionally, we provide support services for all classroom teachers. Students qualify for the ESL program based upon their performance on the state English proficiency assessment in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. The purpose of our program is to help ensure students with limited English proficiency attain English proficiency, develop high levels of academic attainment in English, and meet the same challenging state benchmarks as all students are expected to meet.
