English Learner Education

Blueprint for English Learner Success

Pillar 3: Opportunity and Support

From the Vision: English learners have equitable access to meaningful and rigorous learning opportunities that build on their cultural and linguistic assets and the academic, linguistic, social, and emotional supports they need to excel.

Building Block 3: Social and emotional supports

Level: School

  • School leaders prioritize a school climate in which all ELs have safe and collaborative learning environments and all teachers embrace responsibility for developing students' social and emotional competencies.

  • School staff respond to a range of social and emotional needs using a tiered approach.

  • School leaders are aware of linguistic and cultural supports available in the district and build partnerships with families and community-based organizations to address the social and emotional needs of ELs.
