Kids joining hands around the worldENGLISH LEARNER PROGRAM
The Lowell Joint School District is committed to the academic achievement of all students. This webpage has been created to assist parents and teachers by providing access to information relevant to English learners and English language acquisition.
On July 9, 2014, the California State Board of Education (SBE) adopted the English Language Arts/English Language Development Framework for California Public Schools. This is the first time in the nation that a state has adopted dual guidelines in one publication for both English language arts (ELA) and English language development (ELD). By combining both sets of standards into a coherent curriculum framework, California has made clear that its goal is to prepare all students for literacy in the 21st century.
The Lowell Joint School District strongly supports the involvement of all parents, including those parents of English Learners, in the educational process of their children. Parents are encouraged to participate in their child’s school site English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). This functioning body advises the school site on programs and services for English language learners.
By participating on your child’s school site ELAC, you have the opportunity to serve as a committee member of our District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC). This district level committee consists of parents, teachers, administrators, and district personnel who are interested in becoming knowledgeable about and more involved with the English Learner program.
