English as a Second Language (ESL)
Mt. Healthy ESL Services District Overview
English as a Second Language (ESL) services support the development of students’ English language skills and ensure access to grade level academic content for all students. Students are initially screened for ESL and will remain in the program until they reach a proficient level of English in the domains of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Our goal is to prepare multilingual students for the rigors of a Mt Healthy education by ensuring that they develop the language skills needed to be successful in the classroom.
MTHCS offers a variety of instructional services to ESL students. Current services include pull out literacy classes, English language development (ELD), push in supports, individual tutoring, and after school homework clubs. All ESL students are assessed annually with the Ohio English Language Proficiency Assessment (OELPA) and receive a score of Emerging, Progressing, or Proficient.
