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 2: Graduating college and/or career ready

Level: Classroom

  • Educators ensure that classroom learning prepares ELs for enrollment in college and access to other post-secondary opportunities and honors the hopes and dreams of ELs for post-secondary life.

  • Educators believe that all ELs are candidates for graduation and motivate students by cultivating relationships with them, engaging and collaborating with families, and responding to early warning signs for dropout.

  • Educators who support students with career development activities act without bias and push ELs to reach their highest potential.
