Curriculum Standards

English Learners

Standards and Assessment

The San Ramon Valley Unified School District has adopted the California Standards for English Development as the curriculum for English Learners in the district. Following identification of their language levels on the California English Language Development Test (CELDT), English Learners are served through a site-based English Language Development program. Students are assigned to appropriately certified teachers who provide daily English language Development (ELD) instruction and use Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English (SDAIE) techniques for instruction in content areas. Instruction is based on ELD standards that are aligned with the state and district 's English Language Arts standards.

Since 1999-2000 schools have begun to use their disaggregated data to identify student needs, program needs, and instructional interventions, As district administrators, site administrators, and teachers become more proficient in the use of data, the district will better be able to pinpoint improvements in the way support systems are developed and implemented to support English Learners in meeting standards.

Teaching and Learning

In determining how best to serve English Learners in the SRVUSD, we have reviewed the history of prior success for students identified as English Learners. Data from the review of standardized and district assessment results show that most English Learners who remain in the district for five years or more are academically successful. The high expectations of teachers, parents, and community support the English Learners in meeting grade level standards.

Current Board Policy requires that instruction for English Learners be within the regular classroom with a teacher who is certified to provide instruction to students who are acquiring English as their second language. English learners are only assigned to certified teachers. It is the expectation of the district that all teachers will obtain certification that qualifies them to teach english learners.

The progress of English Learners in monitored at each site by the principal or his/her designee. Students exhibiting learning or behavior problems that may not be language related are referred to the School Success Team for evaluation and assignment to appropriate interventions.
