The Monroe Township ESL Program includes students in Kindergarten through 12th grade.
    The classes are taught by Karen Berecsky  grades 4-8, Laurie Beagan grades 9-12 and
    Nawon Park grades K-3.
    Students who enter the Monroe schools speaking primarily a language other than English
    may be in need of additional assistance in learning English and in maintaining progress in
    the regular program. 
    Monroe has an English as a Second Language (ESL) program for English Language Learners
    (ELLs) available in all grades, K-12, at Mill Lake, Woodland, Monroe Middle School and
    Monroe Township High School. In order to determine which students need to be placed in
    the ELL program, a language test is given within the school. Children who qualify receive
    specialized daily instruction in all aspects of English: understanding, speaking, reading, and
    writing, which will better prepare them for their school careers and their life in the United
    States. A letter is sent home advising parents of this opportunity; however, they have the
    right to refuse these services. Students receive one period daily of ELL instruction. The focus
    of the ELL program is to teach students to understand, speak, read, and write English.
    The ELL teachers also teach content area vocabulary and concepts within the ELL classrooms.
