English Learner Roadmap
Guide to assist local educational agencies to implement California’s 21st century college-and-career-ready standards, curriculum, instruction programs, and assessments.
The California English Learner Roadmap State Board of Education Policy: Educational Programs and Services for English Learners was passed by the State Board of Education on July 12, 2017. This policy is intended to assist the California Department of Education in providing guidance to local educational agencies (LEAs) in order to welcome, understand, and educate the diverse population of students who are English learners attending California public schools. The California English Learner Roadmap: Strengthening Comprehensive Educational Policies, Programs, and Practices for English Learners (CA EL Roadmap) articulated a common vision and mission for educating English learners and supports LEAs as they implement the State Board policy.
These resources have been collected for California educators to:
- Communicate a vision of EL education and actions LEAs can take to support English learners
- Articulate the four principles and the supporting elements that provide the foundation of this vision
- Offer support materials in the form of illustrative case examples from the field that demonstrate the principles and elements in action
- Provide additional resources to support LEAs to implement the State Board policy
