English Language Advisory Council (ELAC)
ELD Program Overview
Endeavor College Prep’s instructional program for English Learners is research-based and aligned with Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, California ELD Standards, and the California ELA/ELD Framework. All classroom teachers provide ELD support through an integrated Structured English Immersion (“SEI”) program. As such, English Learners receive integrated and designated ELD. Classroom teachers in K-6 provide ELD instruction during Designated ELD within the classroom. In grades 7-8, an ELD teacher and classroom teachers provide ELD instruction during Designated ELD in a separate ELD classroom. In addition, Instructional Assistants and classroom teachers provide support to English Learners in small groups during Differentiated Instruction Time. Based on research, we believe that the best approach is through an inclusive SEI program. In an inclusive SEI program, English Learners are fully included with their English fluent peers. The program provides some of the extra supports students need, while immersing them in the English language.
