• The English Learner (EL) Program helps ensure that “students identified as limited English proficient (LEP) attain English proficiency, develop high levels of academic attainment in English, and meet the same challenging State academic content and student academic achievement standards as all students are expected to meet.” (No Child Left Behind Act of 2001). EL services are available to any student who is enrolled in an Onslow County school (grades K-12) and who has been assessed and identified as limited English proficient.
