Multilingual Learner Program

What is the Multilingual Learner Program (MLP)?

The Multilingual Learner Program, funded under Title III, is a federal program that identifies students who enter our schools with limited English proficiency and who speak another language other than English. It provides research-based instructional services that address the linguistic and academic needs of those students known as Multilingual Learners or MLs, from Kindergarten to 12th grade.

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects our students from being discriminated against in their education. They cannot be denied equal educational opportunities regardless of their national origin, native language, or immigrant status. MLs are entitled to an equal education regardless of their national origin, English proficiency, or immigration status.
The ML Program of Orangeburg County School District is both district-led and school-based. The MLP and Title III Program Coordinator is responsible for ensuring that OCSD provides teachers, classes, and materials for our ML students in an equitable manner, in accordance with federal and state mandates.

The Office of Federal and State Accountability (OFSA) will take an asset-based approach by referring to English learners (ELs) as multilingual learners (MLs). An ML brings diverse cultural identities and new perspectives to strengthen our classrooms and communities. MLs achieve the South Carolina College and Career Readiness Standards while navigating between native and instructional languages. MLs provide the global perspective that is needed of the South Carolina Graduate and emphasize the advantages of bi-/multilingualism to honor students’ identities as strengths rather than deficits.
