English Learner Roadmap

  • Providing Direction for English Learner Success

    In July 2017, the California State Board of Education adopted a historic new English Learner education policy; The English Learner Roadmap.  The Roadmap offers a vision and direction for English Learner education that sets California on a new course that views the education of English learners as a system-wide responsibility, recognizes the need to provide English Learner students with a rich and challenging curriculum from early childhood to grade 12, and respects the value of English Learners’ primary language and culture.
