ESL Compliance Requirements

ESL Compliance Requirements

  • TN State Board of Education Policy 3.207 establishes minimum required compliance requirements for LEAs serving students who are identified as English Learners (EL). Approved service delivery models for ESL classes include the ESL pull-out model, push-in/collaborative teaching model, a sheltered content class, and a scheduled ESL class period for all ELs, grades K-12.
  • Each year, the district is required to document direct ESL class time with ELLs at beginning English and intermediate proficiency levels, (WIDA 1.0-3.4, submitting this report to the TN State Department of Education. For this reason, EL students must be scheduled within ESL courses, with identified ESL teachers listed as course instructor.
