Social Circle City Schools serves fewer than 20 English Language Learners who represent more than 2 different languages spoken. The district primarily provides language support to our English Language Learners through the English Speakers of Other Language (ESOL) program to eligible students. ESOL instruction focuses on the development and improvement of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in English to increase student academic success. In addition, students are introduced to the American cultural concepts while being encouraged to value their native language and culture.

Title III is a federally-funded program that provides eligible Local Education Agencies with funding to supplement services for English learners. The mission of this program includes providing support to international parents and students in becoming an integral part of the school and community.
