English for Speakers of Other Languages

  • Our students come to us from diverse socio-economic backgrounds and unique family circumstances. We find strength in this diversity, and work continually to fuse the talents and gifts of each individual student with our common beliefs to produce well-rounded graduates for the future of our community.

    Of our 24,829 students in the Aiken County Public School District, 2,148 are English learners. Twenty-six languages are spoken by students in Aiken County Public Schools. These students represent peoples and communities from all over the globe. Whether students arrive in greater numbers speaking Spanish (1,921 students), or in smaller numbers speaking Mandarin (42 students), French (11 students) or Arabic (7 students) each of them deserves our commitment to provide the very best education possible.

    Through ESOL instruction, students develop proficiency in four key areas – Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This effort is proven over time through annual ACCESS state assessments. The utilization of five progression levels – Entering, Emerging, Developing, Expanding and Bridging – serve as improvement benchmarks for educators and students. Once an English learner is able to display proficiency on the ACCESS assessment with a score of 4.4 overall and competency in all four language domains of 4.0 they are transitioned into the monitoring stage of ESOL.
