Overview and Introduction
In an effort to provide clear communication Clovis Unified School District (CUSD) has translated an abridged version of the CUSD Mater Plan for English Learners. For further information or questions, please contact your school for additional Spanish translations. CUSD Master Plan for English Learners provides specific guidance to all district and school staff on how to identify and serve ELs. It provides district expectations for program implementation and is the foundation for accountability in the delivery of EL program services. The CUSD Master Plan for English Learners in CUSD was collaboratively developed and revised by teachers and administrators, then reviewed by the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) and the District Advisory Committee (DAC). In addition, it was reviewed and revised with input from committees that included the Department of Supplemental Services and Department of Curriculum Services & Professional Development, Department of Special Education and the Department of Assessment & Accountability.
This plan provides a blueprint for providing coherent programs with consistent use of terminology, standard procedures and forms, common course descriptions, and consistent use of instructional materials. The plan is comprised of seven (7) different components of how we identify and serve English learners within CUSD. The CUSD Master Plan for English Learners contains seven parts that describe CUSD’s English Language Program and Services. The CUSD Master Plan for English Learners was adopted by the Board of Education in June, 2003, with revisions Board-adopted in May, 1998, and revised most recently in July 2017 to meet categorical program requirements.
