ENGLISH LEARNER ROADMAP
On July 12, 2017, The California State Board of Education unanimously adopted a historic new policy for English Learners, the California English Learner Roadmap, superseding the 1998 English Learner policy stemming from Proposition 227 in 1998. The new Roadmap policy offers a vision and direction for English Learner (EL) education that views the education of ELs as a system-wide responsibility, recognizes the need to provide EL students with a rich and challenging curriculum from early children to grade 12, and respects the value of English Learners' primary language and culture.
