Centerville’s English Learner (EL) program is for students who have a language other than English spoken in their home and have not yet acquired the English language needed for academic success.
When parents register their child for school, they complete a home language survey. If a language other than English is spoken in the home, the district’s English Learner Coach will coordinate a screening to determine the student's English language proficiency level. If the level is less than proficient, the student will be offered EL services. It is the parent’s right to accept or deny EL services.
EL students are supported by teachers with a Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) endorsement, tutors and interpreters. Centerville City Schools provide these services in compliance with federal and state law.
Students in the ESL program are eligible for Pass/Fail and/or modified grades based on their English language proficiency levels. Parents will be notified of the types of modifications being used in the regular classroom.

The Connect Centerville initiative aims to link current Centerville residents with immigrant families in the community. The goal is to increase engagement between these groups in an effort to promote community and help recently arrived families adjust to their new home. On this page, you will find information about events and programs that are part of the initiative.
The Connect Centerville program is made possible through a grant from the Heren Foundation, a charitable organization started by Fuyao Global Chairman Cho Tak Wong.
