Although English as a Second Language is not a funded program, it is mandated by the state and federal governments. All school districts must provide ESL services for their students according to the law.

Title 22, Chapter 4, Section 4.26 of the Pennsylvania Department of Education Curriculum Regulations requires that the school district provide a program for every student who is limited English proficient or an English Language Learner. Every school district shall provide a program for each student whose dominant language is not English for the purpose of facilitating the student's achievement of English proficiency and the academic standards. Programs under this section shall include appropriate bilingual, bicultural or English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction.

The district will provide every school age child with a home language survey to determine individual student needs regarding ESL services. Parents may contact the building principal for additional information regarding these services.
