The enclosed Add-On Certification Program is submitted for DOE approval from July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2025. The Brevard County School Board has approved previous ESOL plans every five years beginning in 1991 through 2020. The plan was last renewed for the period July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2020. Florida’s revised Teacher Standards for English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) was approved by the State Board of Education on March 26, 2010. The district’s ESOL Add-On Endorsement Program reflects these standards as indicated in Rule 6A-4.02451: Performance Standards, Skills, and Competencies for the Endorsement in English for Speakers of Other Languages.

Recommendation

Approve the Brevard Public Schools ESOL Endorsement Program for submission to the Florida Department of Education for state approval.
