English Language Development

The English–Language Arts Content Standards for California Public Schools (1998) and the Reading/Language Arts Framework for California Public Schools (1999), both adopted by the State Board of Education, define what all students in California, including students learning English as a second language, are expected to know and be able to do.The English-Language Development (ELD) standards are designed to supplement the English–Language Arts content standards to ensure that limited-English proficient (LEP) students (now called English Learners in California) develop proficiency in both the English language and the concepts and skills contained in the English–Language Arts content standards.
