Our Mission

Our mission is to foster the linguistic and academic development as well as the personal and social growth of the English language learners in our learning community, encourage biliteracy, celebrate cultural contributions, and facilitate full inclusion in the Hornet community.

Program Goals

  • Goal #1 – Program Implementation. The BPSD ESOL Program will comply with federal guidelines through the program implementation practices (such as identification, assessment, staffing, etc)

  • Goal #2 – Progress in English language development. ELLs will show growth in all four domains of the English language (listening, speaking, reading and writing) to attain English proficiency.

  • Goal #3 -Progress in academic content. ELLs will show growth to attain parity of participation in the standard instructional program, comparable to their never-EL peers, within a reasonable amount of time.

  • Goal #4 – Program Evaluation. The BPSD ESOL Program will undergo regular evaluation in order to determine what needs exist and establish action steps to improve the program.
