RISD Language Instructional
Education Programs

Roswell Independent School District (RISD) has provided two models of language instructional programs to English language learners (ELs).  The programs include: a 2-hour Transitional Bilingual Education program, and an English as a Second Language Program (ESL). The schools implementing a 2-hour Transitional program include four elementary schools (East Grand Plains, Nancy Lopez, Pecos, and Sunset), three middle schools (Mountain View, Mesa, and Sierra), and one high school, Roswell High. The Bilingual program is for ELs only. The ELs in the program receive a minimum of 45-60 minutes daily instruction in the Spanish language arts or Spanish for native speakers. Additionally, they receive a minimum of 45-60 minutes daily instruction in ESL or ELD depending upon their English proficiency level per the ACCESS. Students in the program receive a minimum of a period of daily instruction in Spanish Language Arts, Spanish Literature, AP Spanish depending upon their Spanish language proficiency level. The schools that do not implement the Bilingual Education program provide the ESL and ELD instruction to ELLs. These students are provided the ESL/ELD instruction in different formats including  Pull-Out, and Content-Based by teachers endorsed in TESOL or trained in Sheltered Instruction.

RISD's Language Instructional Education Program goals are:

  • To develop English language proficiency for English language learners so they will be able to use the language to communicate effectively and appropriately for all life's requirements, both social and academic.
  • To promote bilingualism and biliterate for English language learners and other interested students.
  • To promote student's positive self-concept and cross-cultural understanding.
  • To provide equal educational opportunity to all students to meet the same state content standards and benchmarks in all subjects.
