We have been funded for an ESL Transition to College program over the
next three years by a private foundation. There is a need in CT to
streamline services and to connect what our adult ed public school based
programs do with community colleges. We need to avoid duplication of
services and move forward with best practices. Our current program
(Regional Service Center entity) is more intensive in services 15-20
hours a week with internships and close support services - this is a
major factor in bridging the route to higher ed and referrals to the CC
ESL program. If students complete our program they usually skip a level
at the CC and avoid using some federal assistance for non-credit
courses, which is itself a controversial issue. The school districts
have free programs. PD is extensively provided in CT through a
centralized service. A next step here is further developing the linkages
with the private sector - more VESL on site - we have an increasing
number of these programs. Some funding is being provided through the
Labor Dept. incumbent worker funds and some by the companies. This is a
real growth area for services.

Hello everyone,

I'm so surprised! No one has anything to comment on regarding your
program's effectiveness at helping ESL students advance?? I was very
curious to know if subscribers experience the same types of issues that
Dr. Chisman and Dr. Crandall found in their research: a lack of
intensity of instruction/few protocols for transitioning students/few
opportunities for professional development.

What are the issues in your program that you feel inhibit the ESL
student from advancing? What do you try to do about that?

Please post your questions and comments now.
