About

ESLPortalPA is the Center for Schools and Communities web-based application portal for English as a Second Language (ESL) resources. This portal is maintained in partnership with the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and is a single front door to online training information for educators, school staff and community service providers who work with English learners and their families.

ESLPortalPA provides easy and more direct access to ESL professional learning opportunities and resources such as registering for upcoming state directed trainings, webinars and other events, browsing the resource clearinghouse, reading news, reviewing ESL research and locating newly released publications, finding quick links to PDE documents and other ESL sites, searching the web and more.

Content and service publishing for ESLPortalPA is maintained through the Center for Schools and Communities, a leading Pennsylvania training and technical assistance resource center offering quality educational content, professional development programming, management tools and supportive resources to schools, public agencies and community nonprofit organizations.

ESLPortalPA portal will evolve over time to incorporate an increasing number of valuable online services. Our goal is to create a virtual learning community – a place to learn, share, collaborate and have fun!
