​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​" create schools which are continually responsive to the mixes of cultures and languages that present themselves, and which bring accountability inside the school for providing high achievement." - Laurie Olsen, California Tomorrow

The English Learners Services program provides teachers, parents, and administrators multiple venues for collaboration, communication and networking in order to support and sustain leadership development, standards-based assessment, curriculum and instruction for students K-12.

In cooperation with districts and interagencies, the English Learners Services program develops and disseminates materials to support K-12 biliteracy and promotes student academic achievement through district, region and state professional development programs.
