ESOL & Migrant Programs

The English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program in Sarasota County is designed to provide academic, social, cultural, and support services to students who are limited in English proficiency (LEP). The Migrant Program strives to ensure that the educational needs of migrant children are identified and addressed. The Sarasota County School District recognizes the linguistic and cultural diversity of its students, and encourages all students to preserve their native cultures while developing an awareness of U.S. culture.

Our goal is to provide migrant students and English Language Learners (ELLs) opportunities to achieve the state and Sarasota County standards for all academic subject areas, so that students graduate or receive their GED.

Parents and ESOL Placement
Parents may not refuse remediation for their child. The school is held accountable for the student’s success and section 1003.02(1)(a), Florida Statutes, places the authority and responsibility for assignment of students with the school district.

For administrators - If you are an administrator working with English Language Learners, please read the Florida Administrative Code, Chapter 6A-6, Programs for Limited English Proficient Students.

Programas ESOL & Migrante

El Programa de Inglés para Aprendices de Otros Idiomas (ESOL, por sus siglas en inglés) del Condado Sarasota está diseñado para proporcionar servicios de apoyo académico, social, y cultural a estudiantes que son limitados en el uso de la lengua inglesa (LEP, Limited English Proficient).  

El Programa de Migrantes se esfuerza por asegurar que las necesidades educativas de niños migrantes son identificadas y atendidas. El Distrito del Condado Sarasota reconoce la diversidad lingüística y cultural de sus estudiantes, y anima a todos los estudiantes a conservar su cultura nacional y desarrollar una conciencia de la cultura estadounidense.

Nuestro objetivo es proveer a estudiantes migrantes y aprendices de la lengua inglesa (ELLs) oportunidades de alcanzar los estándares académicos del estado y del Condado de Sarasota para todas las áreas académicas, de modo que los estudiantes se gradúen o reciban su diploma de educación general (GED).

Padres y la colocación en Programa de ESOL

Los padres no pueden rechazar la remediación para su niño.  La escuela es responsable de los logros académicos de los estudiantes, los Estatutos de la Florida, sección 1003.02 (1) (el a), otorga la autoridad y responsabilidad de la asignación de los estudiantes al distrito escolar.

Para administradores - Si usted es un administrador que trabaja con aprendices de la lengua inglesa (ELLs), por favor lea el Código Administrativo de la Florida, el Capítulo 6A-6, Programs for Limited English Proficient Students.
