English to Speakers of Other Languages (Title III-LEP)
The English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program is offered to all English Learners (ELs) in Kindergarten through 12th grades who meet the eligibility criteria.
The purpose of the ESOL Program is to ensure that all students matriculated in GACHS are provided an equitable and appropriate education. The federal and state support for the program rests on the premise that no student in the United States “can be discriminated against on the basis of national origin, race or gender” (1964 Civil Rights Act, Title VI).
Students in the ESOL program are required to meet the same curriculum standards as non-ELs. The content of the curriculum is established by the Georgia Department of Education. The instructional strategies, supplementary materials, and native language assistance are used to ensure that comprehensible instruction is being provided to every English learner at GACHS.
