Bilingual/ESL

The Bilingual/ESL program at Hawkins Street School consists of:
Spanish bilingual students are serviced in a number of ways.  Spanish bilingual students in grades Kindergarten through Second receive their instruction in a self-contained classroom.  Students in grades 3 through 8 are serviced by the SSL teacher through the pull out/push in program.

Portuguese bilingual students are serviced with ESL only, as required by State mandate.  Due to the decrease of students needing this service, Portuguese bilingual services are no longer available at Hawkins Street School.

ESL services are provided to all bilingual students.
