District Plan for Hiring ESL Teachers
Federal guidelines require that districts have a plan for assessing and documenting all ESL teachers’ proficiency in English. Districts must document English proficiency in all four domains of communication: listening, speaking, reading and writing.
In Oak Ridge, potential ESL teachers’ listening and speaking are assessed during the interview process. Reading is documented though the successful completion of an ESL endorsement. Writing is assessed through online questions that are part of the application process.
