SCPS ESOL Mission Statement
"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."
Each year, English Learners take WiDA ACCESS 2.0 which assesses English language proficiency in four domains -- Listening, Reading, Speaking, and Writing. As the ESOL specialists at PRES, our goal is to ensure all students improve in each of those domains. There is a wealth of information for parents to explore in regards to WiDA ACCESS which can be found at the website below.
