The vision of the DeSoto County Schools English Learners Program is to ensure access to meaningful rigorous instruction for English learners as well as provide equity for English learners while maintaining their cultural identity.

DeSoto County Schools values the diverse backgrounds of our students and their unique contributions to the learning community. In order to develop learners who are capable of meeting the challenges of a new language and culture, DCS will support English Learners as they demonstrate social, cultural, and academic competence.  This will be done by creating a learning environment that:

  • Expects students to meet rigorous academic standards
  • Facilitates effective communication in English through reading, writing, speaking, and listening
  • Encourages risk taking and inquiry

If you have any questions or concerns, please email Stephanie Green, Director at stephanie.green@dcsms.org.
