The education of English Learners (ELs) is informed by federal, state, and local policies, research and practice. The EL Master Plan is the Local Education Agency’s (LEA) policy document that has the potential to positively impact the educational programs, practices and experiences of ELs. Aligned and informed by California’s English Learner Roadmap policy as well as federal requirements, this playbook is a guide for educational partners to use to achieve four goals in their LEAs EL Master Plans: (1) equitable, coherent, and sustainable systems; (2) equity-driven processes to deliver research-based programs and practices; (3) effective family-community engagement; and (4) accountability models that ensure EL students’ success. The authors include a variety of tools and processes for LEA’s to use in the development of their EL Master Plan.
