Mount Union Area School District
English as a Second Language

Students whose first language is not English may be eligible for English as a Second Language instruction (ESL) as an English language learner (ELL). Students suspected of needing ESL support are screened upon enrollment and parents whose children qualify for services are notified, in a language they understand, of assessment results including their English language proficiency level (entering, beginning, developing, expanding, or bridging).

Students are exited from ESL instruction when the student’s academic records indicate that the student has met Pennsylvania’s criteria for exiting the ESL program. If you have concerns regarding your child’s ESL services, please contact your child’s school. If you have additional questions, please contact Mrs. Dianne Thomas, Director of Special Education/Pupil Services @ 814-542-2518 Ext. 162.
