English as a Second Language
ESL Logo

Novi Community Schools provides a standards-based English as a Second Language (ESL) program for students who come from homes where a language other than English is spoken.

Each student is evaluated on his/her English language proficiency. In addition, academic performance is considered to determine eligibility. The services for English learners (EL) include ESL classes at all levels, targeted literacy programs at the elementary levels and academic content ESL classes at the upper levels.

Evalicia Smith, Novi's ESL/Title I Coordinator, was recently interviewed by the MI Toolkit publication. The article and YouTube link are below.
