English Language Development
English Language Development (ELD) instruction is designed specifically to advance English learners' (ELs) knowledge and use of English in the academic setting. ELD instruction is designed to help our students who are culturally and linguistically diverse learn and acquire English to a level of proficiency that maximizes their capacity to engage successfully in academic studies taught in English.
An English Language Development (ELD) Specialist is a teacher who is certified to address the linguistic needs of English learners (ELs) and supports language development through instruction and collaboration which informs, guides and supports best practices for the academic achievement of English learner students.
