English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

Welcome to English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and Title III. ESOL services are made available to students who have a first language that is not English or have a language other than English in the home. Under the No Child Left Behind Act, Title III provides funding to support services designed to enhance English language learners’ fluency in English and immigrant students’ understanding of American culture.

The ESOL/Bilingual state funding program is designed to help off-set the cost Kansas school districts incur in their efforts to educate limited English proficient students. ESOL services should provide students with the academic and social language they need to succeed in their educational pursuits.

ESOL services may be delivered in conjunction with other State or Federal programs, i.e. Title I, At-Risk, or social services such as the Migrant Health Program or community programs.
