English for Speakers of Other Languages

We educate English learners, equip their teachers, and empower their families.



An English learner in CCPS is a PreK-12 student whose home language is not English

and meets a few other program requirements.


The ESOL Program in Carroll County Public Schools has experienced dramatic growth

over the past 5 years. Our student population has increased to approximately

325 English learners from many different languages, cultures and countries. Our team

currently includes 18 certified contractual ESOL Resource Teachers and several ESOL Tutors.
