English as a Second Language (ESL)

  • globe in hand
    The Chambersburg Area School District is committed to providing equal educational opportunities to every student. The Language Instruction Education Program formerly known as English as a Second Language (ESL) is designed to accelerate English acquisition for students whose first language is not English and to further assist them in becoming successful learners in the regular classroom. The Chambersburg Area School District will provide comprehensive services to ESL learners within the district to improve and support transition from ESL classes to mainstream classes. We will do this by providing a learning environment in which children gain some degree of growth in the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking through a school-wide team effort, thereby establishing a successful learning environment for all ESL students.
