2016-2017 Plan

Under the ELA/ELD Framework CCSS Restructuring we have expanded the ELD program to restore the second hour of ELD Standards focus for our STELS at the highest level.

Our STELS who are in the qualifying CELDT, Lexile range and Bridging range of ELD--those who would have been ELD 7/8 next year under this year's plan- will now receive two designated blocks of ELD CCSS instruction: ELA SEI(ELA/ELD CCSS) and Designated ALD (ELD CCSS across content). Next year Site and District support will be focused on helping the ELA SEI and Designated ALD teachers address the ELA/ELD CCSS in tandem, which is a State expectation.
