  • Philosophy

    The Plano ISD Bilingual/ESL program is committed to educational excellence and continuous achievement for all English language learners by embracing bilingualism and biculturalism as valued resources.

    Bilingual instruction shall utilize the student’s native language as a foundation for teaching academic content that reflects the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and higher-level thinking skills, while building English proficiency to a level that will ensure successful English transition.

    ESL instruction shall utilize the TEKS to develop English language skills. The ESL staff will serve as a member of a resource team that will facilitate second language approaches. This collaboration will ensure that students are challenged to perform at a level commensurate with their linguistic proficiency and academic potential in all required subjects.

  • State Policy

    "It is the policy of the state that every student in the state who has a home language other than English and who is identified as limited English proficient shall be provided a full opportunity to participate in a bilingual or English as a Second Language program, as required in the Texas Education Code, Chapter 29, Subchapter B."
