The South Allegheny School District provides a program for each student whose dominant language is not English for the purpose of facilitating the student's achievement of English proficiency and all academic standards.  If a student's home language is not English, an English proficiency assessment is given. Students who do not demonstrate English proficiency are scheduled for appropriate English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction and support.
Questions regarding the ESL program may be referred to the student's assigned school building office or Michael Calvert, Director of Elementary Education and ESL coordinator.
