The office of English Language Acquisition directs the English as a Second Language (ESL) programs in Rapides Parish Public Schools. Our goal is to help immigrant students and Limited English Proficient (LEP) students attain English proficiency, develop high levels of academic performance and meet the same challenging state content and achievement standards that all children are expected to meet.
