When all of our voices are heard, English Learners and their families win. Friday, September 7, 2018, Governor Brown signed AB 2735 (O’Donnell) into law prohibiting English Learner students from being denied enrollment in core curriculum courses, courses required for high school graduation or courses for purposes of recognition for college admission, such as advanced placement or honors courses.
With the Governor’s signature, we’ve reached an important step in ensuring all English Learners have access to a full curriculum. The law takes effect on January 1, 2019. We will keep you posted as to how information on these new requirements will be disseminated. Thank you for taking the time to respond to our Action Alerts.
