• Let's Learn Language Together!


    The purpose of the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program is to provide language support and instruction to English learners. This takes place through small group sessions, monitoring academic performance, and providing support and training to classroom teachers.

    What We Do

    Based on the level of English language proficiency, students may have the opportunity to be a part of the ESOL program offered by Florence 1 Schools. The ESOL program is available at every school in the district. Depending on English language proficiency, students may take part in pull-out sessions where ESOL specialists instruct students on language development in small group settings. Student achievement in the mainstream classroom is also monitored to ensure that appropriate accommodations are being made to fit the individual language needs of the student.
