English Learners

English Learners (ELs) come from diverse backgrounds, both culturally and linguistically; they bring to their learning a vast set of experiences and knowledge-base as they engage in the learning process in a new language.

Louisiana believes English Learners (ELs), like all other students, can achieve academic success through a clear and concise alignment of quality standards, instructional programs and resources, professional development, and assessments.


EL Strategies Web

High-quality instruction for ELs requires language acquisition to occur across all content-areas, all day, every day.

The English Learner Guidebook: Changing Educational Outcomes for ELs provides guidance to school systems and school-site leaders in implementing high-quality instruction for ELs.
