This guide will support the strategic development of a comprehensive English Language Learner Supports within a Charter Petition. While this was developed with California-specific examples, it can easily be adapted to fit your state-specific requirements.
The guide is organized by the highest-leverage areas of program design, including -
Target Neighborhood At-A-Glance
Assessing Language Proficiency
Staffing & Professional Development
Monitoring, Evaluation, and Program Effectiveness
Parent & Family Engagement
California State Compliance
In addition to discussing the design components of each focus area, there are guiding questions and sample language from existing charter petitions to guide you throughout.
All charter petitions referenced in this document were approved by the Los Angeles County Board of Education between 2012 and 2018. References should not be taken as endorsements for any one program or method, rather as examples of previous approaches taken and subsequently approved by LACOE.
