Standards & Framework
How does the ELD program work?
OUSD has an EL specialist that works with both students and teachers. The specialist arranges dedicated collaboration sessions with teachers and grade levels to develop effective lesson scaffolding techniques and incorporate strategies across all subject areas. The EL specialist may work within a classroom or may pull students out individually or within groups to provide support alongside regular classroom instruction.
