Title III/English as a Second Language (ESL) Program
County Public Schools strives to maintain an ESL Program that works in
conjunction with the wider school system to provide equal educational
opportunities for students with diverse language backgrounds. All
second language students have equal access to content, facilities, and
the full range of programs offered by BCS.
BCS works to foster an
educational environment where all students can maintain pride in their
own cultural and linguistic heritages while developing the knowledge and
skills necessary for becoming positive, productive members of society.
ESL Program's ultimate goal is that each LEP student in our system
eventually reach grade-level English proficiency in all domains:
listening, speaking, reading, and writing, as measured by the WIDA and
state academic assessments (end-of-grade and end-of-course).
