Enrollment (Grades 1-12)

Notification of English as a Second Language Services

  • Over the last four years, we have had a steady increase of K-3 students coming to the Pine-Richland School District who English as a Second Language services.  Starting in the 2024-2025 school year, we will create a hub for K-3 English as a Second Language services at Wexford Elementary School. The ESL teacher will be stationed at Wexford Elementary and will provide services to your child based on their proficiency level.  

    Benefits of leveraging an ESL hub at Wexford include:

      • Increased ability to have longer periods of ESL instruction
      • More flexible grouping opportunities to meet your child’s needs
      • Opportunity for push-in services to be provided to support your child(ren)’s integration into the general education classroom
      • Specialized training for general education teachers to support ESL students at hub location increasing student participation and acclimation of language 

    If you have indicated during the registration process that English as a Second Language may be a need of your child’s, prior to finalizing your child’s placement and programming at Hance or Richland, your child will be screened by one of our ESL teachers to determine if they qualify for additional ESL services in our Wexford Elementary hub program.  If your child does qualify for ESL programming based on their proficiency levels, you will be notified that they are recommended to go to Wexford Elementary for these services. Transportation from your home to Wexford Elementary will be provided daily. All changes will be reflected within your child’s Sapphire account when their teacher and bus times are updated in early August. Please reach out with any additional questions. Thank you!
