Does your Dashboard data suggest your EL student group needs a new kind of attention?

More than 28% of our local students are English learners. We must attend to the specific language needs of these students as we aim to improve the overall achievement of our learners.

The B E L I E F professional learning modules are designed to support district and site administrators in leading the change — building and refining the EL programs within their systems. This comprehensive overview of systems for EL programs and ELD implementation is designed with leadership teams in mind.

2018-19 Cohort:
Wednesday, November 14, 2018 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. |  New One-Day Overview


The updated one-day workshop will support the time-challenged team by providing an overview of the seven B.E.L.I.E.F. modules, including the new Module 6 on differentiating support for EL student groups including Newcomers and Long-term ELs.  This session will include:

  • current EL & ELD research; 
  • opportunities to deepen understanding of Integrated and Designated ELD;
  • an introduction to activities to analyze, reflect upon, and refine programs for English learners; 
  • ideas to use with staff to support implementation;
  • and connections to the ELPAC and California’s new English Learner Roadmap policy
Module Topics:

  • Module 0: Introduction, ELD Foundation
