Welcome to Mrs. Byers' Class of
English Language Learners.
What is the goal of the ESOL program?
The English to Speakers of Other Language (ESOL) program goals are to help students obtain English language proficiency and to meet age and grade appropriate academic achievement standards for grade promotion and graduation. To reach this goal it is critical that instructional approaches, both in ESOL and general education classes, accommodate the needs of Columbia County linguistically and culturally diverse student and parent population.
The ESOL program assists students to succeed in all four language domains of speaking, listening, reading and writing; both socially and academically.
Our ESOL program accepts students from Parkway Elementary, Greenbrier Elementary, and Riverside Elementary. Those schools do not have an ESOL program. Transportation is provided for all students from the schools.
