Background | Advisory Bodies | Title III COE Liaison Agency Duties | Term of Office | Application |

Background

The new California Statewide System of Support was established to help build local capacity and assist local educational agencies (LEAs) with implementation of a continuous improvement process focused on the identification and elimination of inequities. The support includes three levels: (1) support for all; (2) individually designed, or differentiated; and (3) intensive intervention.

As part of this system of support, the Regional English Learner (EL) Specialists, provide technical assistance within their region to equip LEAs in the development, implementation, and evaluation of strategies that ensure each English learner has the resources they need to succeed. Depending on the needs of a geographic region, the areas addressed by this support can include any or all of the following:

  • Coaching and Capacity Building for systemic improvement in data analysis and data-based decision making, strategic use of resources and technology, high-quality instruction including both integrated and designated instruction focused on English learners, plan development, and program implementation, especially as related to English learners and the EL Roadmap.
  • Stakeholder Engagement to promote parental involvement and community support by communicating the vision and strategic plan, implementing community engagement practices, and educating all stakeholders to foster meaningful participation in district and school governance, especially as related to English learners and the EL Roadmap.
  • Facilitation and Resource Connection to effectively develop partnerships and mobilize specialized resources and expertise to support the continuous improvement process and connect COEs and school districts within the defined geographic area to resources or expertise within the California Statewide System of Support; especially as related to English learners and the EL Roadmap.

Advisory Bodies

  • California Department of Education (CDE)
