Multilingual Education and Global Achievement

The potential of our students who are learning a new language is limitless. It’s up to district and school leaders, teachers, and counselors, to provide equitable access to the opportunities and supports each student needs to succeed in school and in college and career.

The San Diego County Office of Education has the experienced specialists to support educators through the WRITE and Project GLAD academic models, best practices to engage parents, state and federal accountability technical assistance, professional networks, and a variety of thoughtfully-designed professional learning opportunitiesFocus on English Learners is a research brief to support educators' practice in the classroom. This is an image of the cover.

The Multilingual Education and Global Achievement (MEGA) department also produces the quarterly research brief, Focus on English Learners, in partnership with the California English Learner Collaboration. 

The term language learner includes both students who are English learners and students in dual language or trilingual school programs. Each language learner is a unique child. Their first language could be English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Arabic, Punjabi, Russian, or 60 other languages. They could have a two-language home, or school could be the only time they hear English. They could be anywhere from age 5 to 18.

They are all uniquely poised to be bilingual leaders in our growing, global economy.
