ESOL Services
English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) education programs

HCPS Elementary and middle school English language learner programs operate on a “pull out”, “plug in” model for English language instruction. All English language learner students must take the Ballard and Tighe state mandated Idea Proficiency Test upon enrollment to ascertain their oral and written English language communication skills. The ESOL staff has established collegial working relationships with the various mainstream classroom teachers in order to provide effective and meaningful instructional services to all English language learners.


If your child speaks English as a second language and you're interested in ESOL services, please contact Ms. Ortolani for more testing information.
