• Bilingual/ESL Programs

    GISD’s Bilingual/ESL Programs team supports English language learners through a variety of instructional models at both the elementary and secondary levels. The department’s goal is to provide all students with the skills they need in order to become fluent speakers, readers, and writers of English while valuing their linguistic, academic, and cultural experiences as members of a diverse community.  

    El personal del departamento de Programas de Educación Bilingüe y del Inglés como Segundo Idioma apoya a aprendices del inglés a través de una variedad de modelos de enseñanza en las escuelas primarias y secundarias. Nuestra meta es de desarrollar en todos los alumnos las destrezas necesarias para hablar, leer, y escribir el inglés con dominio y fluidez. A la vez, deseamos valorar sus experiencias lingüísticas, académicas y culturales, y reconocerlos como miembros de una comunidad diversa.
