English Learner Education

Blueprint for English Learner Success

Pillar 2: Access to Educators

From the Vision: English learners are taught by effective, well-prepared, and culturally responsive educators who hold them to high standards and have the materials and professional learning they need to advance students' academic and linguistic development simultaneously.

Building Block 2: Educators with high standards for English learners

Level: District

  • The district's planning documents and professional learning opportunities communicate urgency about the need to support ELs to meet or exceed grade-level standards. District leaders provide regular feedback to school administrators that reinforces high expectations for ELs.

  • District administrators monitor schools to ensure that ELs participate in complex academic discourse at the same rates as their non-EL peers.
