English Learner Program OverviewTop of Page

The district's programs and services for English Learners are designed to help students who have a home language other than English meet grade level academic standards and develop English proficiency. English Learners receive instruction in academic subjects, including English language development (ELD), as part of their core program. In addition, they receive a variety of supplemental programs and services funded by federal (e.g. Title III) and other funds. Programs and services for English Learners are guided by numerous state and federal requirements, which may be found in the English Learner Federal Program Monitoring (FPM) Instrument link below.

Title IIITop of Page

The federal Title III program provides additional funds to support English Learners through supplemental programs and services. The district is currently under Title III Accountability for not meeting state-designated Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAOs). While we have met AMAO 1 and AMAO 2 the last couple of years, we have not meet AMAO 3 (see Title III Accountability Report link below). Our district's Title III Year Four plan may be found in the link below. This plan is aligned to our Local Agency Educational Agency Plan (LEAP).
