Bilingual/ESL Program Mission Statement

JISD is committed to addressing the affective, linguistic and cognitive needs of students who are identified as English Language Learners by providing them an equal educational opportunity  through Bilingual and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs.

The JISD Elementary Bilingual/ESL Programs will emphasize the mastery of English language skills, as well as mathematics, science and social studies enabling ELL's to participate effectively and equitably in the teaching/learning process through the state's curriculum, the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and the English Language Standards (ELPS). This will allow students to reach their full potential through equitable experiences which ensure that they become confident, productive and competent members of our multicultural society.
