What is ESOL?
The ESOL program assists students to acquire both social and academic language in English by providing direct instruction on a daily basis. The program provides targeted support that enables English learners to master the skills needed for success in American schools.
Each year, students who qualify for ESOL services are tested with the ACCESS for ELLs test to measure language growth and to determine continued eligibility for the program. ACCESS for ELLs measures the four key language skills of listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Mimosa students will begin taking the four parts of the test when they return from Winter Break. Make sure your children get enough sleep before coming to school and encourage them to do their best on every test.
