English Learners

English learners 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.
