New Arrival Program

Sheldon ISD has designed accelerated English learning programs at King Middle and King High School to meet the unique needs of students new to U.S. schools.  After students have enrolled in the district, the campus will determine if the student is in need of additional English language supports and be enrolled in these specialized classes.  Students zoned to Null Middle School will be offered a transfer to King Middle and transportation will be provided.


Once it has been determined that students English proficiency has progressed, students will be enrolled in regular classes with an ESL certified English teacher.  The campus will continue to work with the students toward developing English proficiency.
