New English-Spanish Glossary Available

The 2018 English-Spanish Glossary for Educational Settings is here! This glossary encourages the consistent use of words and terminology that are common to state and federal communication documents about assessment, education, and accountability. In particular, the CDE has used the glossary for the production of materials for Spanish-speaking audiences. The CDE now offers this resource to local educational agencies to use for the same purpose.
