MRSD ESOL Primary Level Program
The ESOL program at Monadnock Elementary Schools is a combination of two models of instruction: pull-out and inclusion. It serves students in grades K-6. English language learners are placed in mainstream classrooms and receive ESOL support based on their individual needs.
This instruction incorporates teaching methods such as direct teacher instruction, small group work, partner work, or one-on-one work. All units of study are aligned with both state and local academic standards.
The instrument utilized to determine the English language proficiency level of the students is the W-APT Placement Test. If students obtain a not-fluent proficiency level in English language (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) they are eligible to receive the ESOL services. Once yearly, all students take the ACCESS Annual test to determine their progress in the same four areas of language development.
