    What is ESOL?

    ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) is a program designed specifically to improve the language proficiency of students whose native language is not English. In addition to receiving academic instruction in reading, writing, speaking and listening, the ESOL program strives to develop an appreciation of diverse cultures and languages. 

    ¿ Qué es ESOL?

    ESOL (Inglés para Hablantes de Otros Idiomas ) es un programa diseñado específicamente para mejorar la competencia lingüística de los estudiantes cuyo idioma materno no es el Inglés. Además de recibir la instrucción académica en lectura, escritura , conversación y comprensión , el programa ESOL se esfuerza por desarrollar una apreciación de las diversas culturas y lenguas.

    To comply with the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, LEP students must be identified during the enrollment process.  As part of the enrollment process, all Parents/Guardians must fill out the home language survey for every child enrolling. 

    Families registering children are assisted in completing the documents and registration materials on-site, as needed.  Horry County Schools uses the Home Language Survey (HLS) results to determine the need for further English language proficiency screening and possible English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) services.

    If the family indicates a language other than English on the HLS, the enrolling school registrar notifies the ESOL teacher of the need for screening.
