|The ESOL Program is transitioning from a discrete skills curriculum to a standards-based curriculum emphasizing language proficiency. The program's overarching standard is that students will use English to communicate and demonstrate academic, social, and cultural understanding. To reach this standard, it is critical that instructional approaches, both in ESOL and general education classes accommodate the needs of Georgia's linguistically and culturally diverse student and parent populations. To the extent practicable, it is appropriate to use the home language as a means of facilitating instruction for English language learners and communication with their parents.
