Every school district shall provide a program for each student whose dominant language is not English for the purpose of facilitating the student’s achievement of English proficiency and the academic standards under §4.12 (relating to academic standards). Programs under this section shall include appropriate bilingual-bicultural or English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction by a certified ESL specialist.
The goal of Shippensburg School District’s English Language Language (ESL) program is to facilitate the acquisition of English language skills of students whose native or first language is not English. Core program instruction in social and academic English and appropriate support is important so these students are not at risk of losing educational opportunities.
