-----------------

Bilingual Education in Pearland ISD is a transitional early exit instructional program offered in selected elementary and middle schools (PK-6) for students whose native language is Spanish and who need to enhance their English language skills.  The program provides English Language Learners (ELL) students with structured skills development in English and native language support from bilingual certified teachers.

 

Due to the critical shortage of bilingual certified teachers at the elementary level, the bilingual program is only offered at six (6) Pearland ISD campuses:

Carleston Elementary       

Cockrell Elementary 

Lawhon Elementary 

Magnolia Elementary        

Jamison Middle School 

Sablatura Middle School 

Student and TeacherPearland ISD campuses serve elementary and secondary language minority students who speak other languages (excluding Spanish at the elementary level) through an ESL program with ESL certified teachers and/or content area teachers provided with training in ESL methodology.  Also, because of increasing enrollment of Vietnamese speaking students, Pearland ISD has submitted exceptions with TEA for a bilingual Vietnamese program and is actively recruiting bilingual Vietnamese certified teachers.

 

 

In grades PK-12, PISD provides English as a Second Language ( ESL ) programs for all students whose native language is other than English and/or Spanish.  Students who are identified English Language Learners (ELLs) are provided with English language support.  Instructional programs encompass several models including: self-contained classes with ESL certified teachers, pull-out and push-in instruction, tutoring, and content area instruction with Sheltered Instruction (SIOP) trained teachers.  Flexibility in program models ensures that ELL students are afforded the best language support until they can become proficient in English and can be mainstreamed into general education classes.  Students are evaluated through-out the school year in listening, speaking, reading, and writing.  Every spring, all active K-12 grade ELL students are assessed via the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS).
