English Learner Education

Blueprint for English Learner Success

Pillar 4: A Plan for Future Success

From the Vision: English learners thrive in high school and graduate with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to be successful in college and/or a career of their choice, and to contribute to civic life in a global community.

Building Block 1: Thriving in high school

Level: School

  • School administrators prioritize ELs' participation in all aspects of school life and regularly communicate this priority to school staff.

  • School leaders cultivate partnerships and organize resources to address linguistic, economic, and social barriers to ELs' participation in school life (e.g., provide support for extracurricular activities, transportation support, native language communications, assemblies on implicit bias).
