ESL stands for English as a Second Language. ELL stands for English Language Learner. For many students, their first language is a language other than English. ESL programs in CPS help ELL students obtain first and second language acquisition (SLA), if they have not done so already, to get all students college and career ready.
At Sauganash School, we provide the Transitional Program of Instruction (TPI). To learn more about TPI and ESL in CPS, visit http://www.cps.edu/about_cps/departments/pages/officeoflanguageandculturaleducation.aspx and/or contact our lead ELL teacher, Anna Ihana, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
