HLS EL Program Mission
The Hamilton Local School District seeks to provide every child, regardless of national origin or native language, quality and meaningful educational instruction. Our mission is to provide English Learners with high-quality instruction in the English language to prepare them to succeed in all areas of school and society through collaboration, structured support, and authentic language learning, while placing value on the native language and culture of all students. Appropriate support, modifications and accommodations will be made in all classes, so that they may develop the English language skills necessary to successfully achieve academically and socially in the United States. Consequently, students who are English language learners (ELL) are provided instructional services through the Title III English as a Second language (ESL) program which is designed to meet their unique needs.
