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.

SUHSD participates in the State Seal of Biliteracy program, which is a recognition from the State Superintendent of Public Instruction of graduating high school students who have attained a high level of proficiency in speaking, reading, and writing in one or more languages in addition to English. Seals are awarded to those students who fully meet the eligibility requirements. For more information, visit: CA Dept. of Ed. Seal of Biliteracy Web Site.
