ESL Compliance Requirements

Current ESL Rule

  • TN State Board of Education Rule Chapter 0520-01-19 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 ELs 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.
