Multilingual California Project ResourcesMultilingual California Project resources from the California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE), one of the two Educator Workforce Investment Grant (EWIG): EL Roadmap Implementation recipients.
The Multilingual California Project (PDF) builds on consistently strong research documenting multilingualism as the most effective option for the academic achievement of English learners across all content areas and for preparation to participate effectively in the global workforce. Guiding the implementation of the EL Roadmap Policy, the Multilingual California Project will deliver a powerful statewide model to strengthen the capacity of districts in dramatically accelerating the academic and multilingual opportunities, and outcomes of English learner students across California.
CABE is the lead for the project with the following official partners: (1) San Diego County Office of Education; (2) Orange County Department of Education; (3) Butte County Office of Education; (4) Fresno County Superintendent of Schools; (5) San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools; (6) San Diego State University; and (7) Wexford Institute. Project participants include 60 local educational agencies (LEAs), strategically selected to represent diverse regions across the state (rural, suburban, and urban) from the five partner counties and the five CABE regions. Additional partners include the National Equity Project, the University of San Diego, the Language Acquisition Resource Center, and the Chinese Culture Center. Furthermore, nationally recognized leaders in the fields of equity and language acquisition have agreed to advise the progress of this project.
The Multilingual California Project will ensure successful launch, implementation, and delivery of professional development resources while helping to build capacity to implement the California EL Roadmap Policy across the state. Using a four-stage model over the course of three years, the project will provide greater statewide interaction with, and understanding of, the EL Roadmap Policy and its resources while providing guidance and support to LEAs for focused, in-depth strategic development and implementation of the EL Roadmap Policy.
