English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Program


Multicultural Education Department Logo


The English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Program in the School District of Osceola County serves students who have been identified as English Language Learners (ELL). The students are enrolled in appropriate grade level courses of Language Arts/ESOL, Math, Science, Social Studies and Computer Literacy. ELL students are introduced to the various cultural aspects of American society to facilitate their transition into the community life of their new country. Students who meet the eligibility criteria as a result of a screening process are served in the ESOL Program. An assessment model was developed for evaluating and placing all potential ELL students. The aural/oral test and the reading and writing sections of a norm-referenced test used to determine eligibility into the program are approved by the Florida Department of Education.
