ESL Program Description

        English as a Second Language (ESL) is a language instructional educational program for students whose primary language is a language other than English. Cleveland County Schools currently have around 268 English Language Learners. We have a total of 9 ESL teachers  who work with ELLS. Among the languages spoken in CCS we have Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Turkish, Gujarati, Hmong, Arabic and many more.
        The main  goal of the ESL program is to teach ELLS listening, speaking, reading and writing skills  to be successful in an English speaking environment. Both ESL teachers and content area teachers are expected to utilize the WIDA Standards for English Language Learners in every day instruction.
        ESL teachers as well as content area teachers use ExC-ELL as well as SIOP strategies to support ELLS in the content areas. Classromm and testing accommodations are in placed for those who qualify and need them to be successful in their daily instruction. ESL teachers pull out English language learners and work on language development utilizing the common core standards from different content areas such as LA, Math, Science, Social Studies as well as social and instructional language.
        Both ESL teachers and content area teachers collaborate to determine the content ESL teachers need to work on with ELLS. At the same time ESL teachers offer support to teachers providing them with WIDA standards reports, expertise and advise on how to better serve ELLS.
        CCS also has several Spanish speaking interpreters that help bridge the gap between parents and school. These interpreters are available for parent conferences, meetings, parent involvement events, etc. We also contract with a company that helps us communicate with parents that speak other languages besides Spanish.
