Hoping for help with immigrant youth

To the editors:
Thank you for your truly comprehensive issue about our district’s immigrant population and the many issues concerning ESOL instruction.
I’d like to note that we do have exit criteria for ESOL students based on PSSA performance, ACCESS test scores, and a minimum grade of C in the core subject areas.
I am not alone in missing the assistance our ELL coaches used to provide. I hope that help is on the way – thanks, in part, to your reporting.
