English as a Second Language Overview

  • The Title III Federal Program supports language instruction for English learners and immigrant students. This additional support helps these students to succeed with core academic subjects and meet the North Carolina state student achievement standards expected of all students. The school system has an English as a Second Language (ESL) academic support center located at the Walter Bickett Education Center, which houses materials that may be checked out by ESL teachers, regular classroom teachers and families.
