Next Steps & Considerations Moving Forward

  • The Director of ELL recommends increasing the amount of time ELL Specialists spend on the implementation of the CGCS recommendations from April 2014 through January 2015

    • Specifically, the ELL team will continue to monitor local and federal regulations, support student placement, and facilitate already scheduled PD

    • This will allow the ELL team to dedicate the necessary time to address many of the CGCS recommendations that require significant project planning:

      • Multiple graduation pathways for ELLs (C.15-17)

      • Framework for the strategic use of native language support across ELL programming and instructional services (D. 23)

      • Plan for Bilingual and Dual Language implementation in grades 6-12 (D.24)

      • Newcomer and new arrival programming (D.25)

      • Redesign Dual Language Programming (K-5) (D.27)

      • Flexible programming options for ELLs with disabilities (D.30)

      • Staffing plan for ELL programming K-12 (H.56-57)
