What K-12 Decision Makers Need to Know about Serving English Learners


  • Joan Nelson
  • Patty Finnegan


This 3-hour workshop will assist the K-12 principal, district administrator, and other key leaders in better understanding what is needed to effectively serve the English Learners (ELs) in their district and buildings.  An overview of second language acquisition will be provided, followed by an introduction to the language program models available to serve ELs in Washington State.  Understanding of SBA and ELPA data through an EL lens will be covered, including what it means for a building to make adequate EL progress. We will also share an overview of funding, assessment, and accountability from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) Bilingual Education Program with particular focus on how to effectively utilize available resources.
