English Learner Roadmap Launch EventsLaunching the Roadmap to Strengethn Educational Policies, Programs, and Practices for English Learners.
California English Learner Roadmap Launch Events
The California English Learner Roadmap State Board of Education Policy: Educational Programs and Services for English Learners (EL Roadmap Policy) is a groundbreaking update—the first of its kind in 20 years—addressing the vision that “English learners fully and meaningfully access and participate in a twenty-first century education” and attain “high levels of English proficiency, mastery of grade level standards, and opportunities to develop proficiency in multiple languages.” The California Department of Education, in conjunction with local county offices of education, is pleased to offer implementation guidance through California English Learner Roadmap Launch Events across the state.
These interactive events will invite teams to:
- Dig deeper into the California English Learner Roadmap: Strengthening Comprehensive Educational Policies, Programs, and Practices for English Learners (CA EL Roadmap)
- Prepare to communicate with stakeholders about the EL Roadmap Policy
- Work toward aligning the four principles of the CA EL Roadmap with the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP)
- Learn from other districts currently implementing Roadmap policy
Teams should include superintendents and assistant superintendents and may also include site administrators, classroom teacher leaders, school board members, county office teams, university partners and institutions of higher education, other educational support organization representatives, and directors or coordinators in the areas of, curriculum, instruction, English learner education, data analysis, assessment, LCAP development, accountability, and early childhood education.
