ESL Pull-Out Program
An English program that serves students identified as students of limited English proficiency in English only by providing a part-time teacher certified under Section 29.061(c) to provide English language arts instruction exclusively, while the student remains in a mainstream instructional arrangement in the remaining content areas. ESL Pull-Out services are offered at three elementary campuses in PAISD. The program serves ELL students who speak languages for which bilingual education is not offered, and for students whose parents deny bilingual services in favor of ESL only. The ESL program provides English only instruction by an ESL certified teacher. The teacher uses ESL strategies and instructional scaffolding to make the grade level content accessible to ESL students.
