English as a Second Language (ESL)

The Slippery Rock Area School District provides services for each student whose dominant language is not English for the purpose of facilitating the student's achievement of English proficiency and all academic standards. The family of each student who enrolls in the District is asked to complete a home language survey. If a student's home language is not English, an English proficiency assessment is given. Students who do not demonstrate English proficiency are scheduled for appropriate English Language (EL) instruction. Questions regarding the EL program may be referred to the Special Services Office at 724-794-2960.
