English Learner (EL) Program
Our mission is to create equitable, coherent, and sustainable systems of English learner services; develop equity-driven processes to build capacity for delivering research-based programs and practices that leverage English learner students' assets and address their specific needs; establish effective family-community engagement systems to foster collaborative partnerships; and implement a local accountability model that ensures English learner students' success. Acalanes Union High School District is committed to providing English learners with a high-quality structured English immersion program designed to teach English learners the necessary English language skills needed to succeed academically in English-only classrooms.
