While English is designated as the official language of the state of Georgia, our responsibility is to successfully prepare our students to access all post-secondary options available. This objective requires that our instructional approach be flexible to accommodate the needs of a very diverse student and parent population. Our aspiration is to have students succeed in all four language skills both socially and academically. We also wish for them to understand and function successfully in our American culture. To accomplish these goals, we may need to provide some support in the native language at times and this accommodation is entirely acceptable.
