English as a Second Language (ESL) Program Information

The goal of the English as a Second Language (ESL) program at Clairton City School District is to provide students with limited English proficiency the instruction and academic support that is needed in the areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing. ESL instruction is provided by teachers who hold Instructional I or II certificates in elementary or secondary education. The teacher must also have an ESL Specialist Certification. Lessons must align with the Common Core and the Pennsylvania Academic Standards for ELLs. The Clairton City School District uses the National Geographic Reach Curriculum for ESL instruction.
