English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
The Fort Mill ESOL team believes that best practices and appropriate accommodations, adapted to individual student performance and growth, are essential in meeting our MLs' needs throughout the various levels of language acquisition. We are committed to supporting classroom teachers in their differentiation and scaffolding of instruction to deliver comprehensible input that promotes equitable access to content and the curriculum.
The goals of the Fort Mill ESOL Program are:
- to provide equal educational opportunities to MLs who have a primary or home language other than English
- to increase student achievement among MLs, and
- to develop and support successful instructional models at the classroom and building level.
MLs are multilingual learners.
ESOL is English for Speakers of Other Languages.
