English Language Development » ELD


The English Language Learners (ELL) program, also known as Structured English Immersion,  provides support for students who score less than reasonable fluency in English. Students are identified for this program based upon the home language survey information and result from the English Language Proficiency Assessment for California (ELPAC).

Placement in the program is based on multiple-measures: initial assessment, state testing, districtwide local common assessments, and recommendations.  The design of instruction at all levels is to support students in becoming independent, strategic, critical readers and effective communicators as they acquire language across disciplines. 

Reclassification Requirements (RFEP): 
The goal of the EL program is for students to become fully proficient in English and to master state standards for academic achievement as rapidly as possible.  The LEA criteria are as follows:
1. Level 4 on ELPAC NEW STATE REQUIREMENT FOR 2019-2020!
2. Meeting proficiency on 1 of 3 academic measurements: 
CAASPP (Grade 8 and 11), Site Common Assessment (Fall or Spring)  or Districtwide Common Assessment (November). 
3. Teacher Evaluation
4. Parental Consultation
It is the goal of CUHSD to provide quality instruction to all students by supporting students at all levels of proficiency and providing access to rigorous, core curriculum. 
Note: At any time during the school year, you may have your child moved into the English Language Mainstream Program.
