English as a Second Language
The current English as a Second Language (ESL) programs in Putnam City Schools are designed to meet the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015. In addition to language instruction, the programs are organized to identify, assess and serve all eligible students as required by the ESSA Act. Furthermore, proper procedures are established to document the learning progress of our English language learners. A monitoring system has been put in place to guarantee the success of students who have exited the program up to two years after being proficient in English. The ESL programs encompass research-based curricula, which are typically found in school districts across the United States.
