Course Description

CE Course Description

School representatives must ensure that ELs and immigrant students attain English language proficiency and achieve rigorous academic standards. This intermediate level continuing education course was developed using information from the U.S. Department of Education's English Learner Toolkit, which was designed to help state and local education agencies (SEAs and LEAs) meet their legal obligations to ELs and provide all ELs with the support needed to attain English language proficiency while meeting college­ and career ­readiness standards. Tools, resources, and recommendations to best serve English learners are presented as well as strategies to help school districts provide effective programs and services to these students.

CE Course Objectives

1. Describe strategies to help state and local education agencies (SEAs and LEAs) meet their obligations to English Learners (ELs).

2. Identify numerous tools and resources that educators, parents, advocates, administrators, and other concerned parties can access to assist English learners.

3. Discuss how programs can be designed and implemented to enable ELs to attain both English proficiency and parity of participation in the standard instructional program.

4. Summarize the steps for addressing the long term needs of English learners as well as ELs who participate in special education and related services.

5. Consider ways to provide the personnel necessary to effectively implement EL programs.

6. Outline methods to assist LEAs in limiting the segregation of ELs to the extent necessary to reach the stated goals of an educationally sound and effective program.

7. Review the LEAs responsibility to assist ELs with disabilities and to communicate effectively with parents of English learners.

8. Determine which tools and resources may be most effectively used to create inclusive environments for ELs, to assist those who opt out of programs, and to best serve those with disabilities.

9. Examine strategies to help school districts provide effective programs and services to EL students.
