•  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 is

    noted, the students are given the language proficiency screener called the
    WAPT 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.
