• The English Learner Leaders' Network

    Working in one of the most diverse counties in the United States affords us the rare privilege of supporting students with vastly different cultures and linguistic needs. Join fellow language and literacy colleagues as we explore ways in which to empower teachers’ pedagogical practices and students’ voices through communal
    discussion around policy, program implementation, and resources.

    Content from each meeting will include updates from the California Department of
    Education (CDE)’s Bilingual Coordinators Network and the Curriculum and Instruction Steering Committee (CISC)’s ELA/ELD Subcommittee, as well as opportunities to learn from leaders in the county through district spotlights and networking.

    The current version of this community of practice began on March 17, 2020.
