    Welcome to the website for the Catawba County Schools English as a Second Language program. Our program serves over 1377 Limited English Proficiency (LEP) students, from 38 different countries, speaking 36 native languages (at last count). Our goal is to enable these students to successfully become members of our school community, reaching their goals and fully participating in the variety of experiences that we have to offer. 

    This site is a resource for parents, students, and school personnel alike. We offer educational resources for teachers and families, community resources and services, and translations of school documents into several languages.
