No more fees for English as a Second Language classes! English as a Second Language (ESL) classes for adults, are offered at beginning to intermediate levels on a continuous basis. These classes focus on communication for work, home, school, and the community, and help develop and improve communication skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students improve their English grammar, gain important life skills, and learn more about American culture.
The California Department of Education is expected to release statewide data Sept. 9, though families will not receive individual student scores before late September.
To celebrate Attendance Awareness Month this September, we are holding a Positive Attendance Poster Contest for all students in the district.
