ELA/ELD Framework
The 2014 ELA/ELD Framework has been developed to support and incorporate the California State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects (CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy) and the California English Language Development Standards (CA ELD Standards). The SBE (California State Board of Education) adopted the ELA/ELD Framework on July 9, 2014
Advisory Committees
The Woodland Unified School District strongly supports the involvement of all parents, including those parents of English Learners, in the educational process of their children. Parents are encouraged to participate in their child’s school sites’ English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). Each participating school site holds a minimum of seven to nine general sessions per school year. This functioning body advises the school site on programs and services for English Language Learners. By participating on your child’s school sites’ ELAC, you have the opportunity to serve as a committee member of our District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC). This district level committee consists of parents, teachers, administrators, and district personnel who are interested in becoming knowledgeable about and more involved with the English Learner program.
