Welcome to ESOL at Blandford Elementary
Hello and welcome to English Students of Other Languages (ESOL) at
Blandford Elementary School in Rincon, Georgia. Potential ESOL students
are determined by the student registration form (section 8) that asks if another
language other than English is spoken at home. If an additional language isnoted, the students are given the language proficiency screener called theWAPT for kindergarten or WIDA Screener Placement Test for grades 1-12.Parents/Guardians are notified if their child qualifies.
The ESOL program is designed to help students that speak an additional
language at home other than English. The ESOL program works with
students to promote learning in four educational learning domains at
the school; reading, writing, listening and speaking. Students that qualify
for ESOL services at Blandford Elementary remain in their homerooms but
receive additional service from the ESOL support teacher. The ESOL teacher
has the ability to use two teaching methods to help the students. The students
can be pulled-out to the resource room for instruction from the
ESOL teacher or the ESOL teacher can push-in and provide help in the general
education teacher’s room. ESOL students in kindergarten (k) through
second (2nd) grade will receive 45 minutes of service. Students in third (3rd)
through fifth (5th) grade will receive 50 minutes of service.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
