The English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program works to ensure equal educational access for English Learners and their families. We recognize that all stakeholders share the responsibility of ensuring that English learners develop linguistic, cognitive, and academic skills to become competitive citizens of our society. Therefore, students whose first language is not English participate in academically challenging programs that respect and build upon the unique cultural and linguistic attributes they bring to the learning community.
As the Stafford County population has grown so has the number of people residing here that speak a language other than English. There are over eighty-five languages represented in Stafford County Public Schools. With this population growth comes an increase in the number of ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) students that Stafford County Public Schools services.
