  • ESOL Center Expansion 2019-2020

    Richland School District One is committed to providing the highest quality education to every student in our district while at the same time meeting all state and federal guidelines for serving families with children who are designated as English learners. The population of ESOL students is growing in our state and in our district.

     

    As part of a careful re-evaluation of the schools designated as ESOL centers, Richland One is expanding the number of centers in order to better meet the needs of our students. We will now be offering ESOL services at more schools which will ensure that children are spending less time being transported from their zoned school to an ESOL center and will put children back in their communities and closer to home. 

     

    Consult the ESOL Center School Expansion FAQ for more information.

  • ESOL The goal of Richland County School District One's ESOL Program is to provide equal educational opportunities for culturally and linguistically diverse students who have a primary or home language other than English and who are Limited English Proficient (LEP) or Non-English Proficient (NEP). The primary focus of the instructional program is to provide an English-rich environment so that LEP and NEP students become proficient in English as soon as possible. The instructional program provides support while students transition into complete mainstream instruction.

     

    Richland County School District One creates a learning environment that provides the cognitive and affective support to help language minority students become contributing members of society. The ESOL Program, beginning with kindergarten and continuing through high school, provides each LEP or NEP student with an opportunity to acquire knowledge of the US culture and to develop listening, speaking, reading, and writing proficiency in order to be academically successful in mainstream classes.
