Purpose of California English Language Development Standards
- Designed to be used in tandem with CCSS for ELA & Literacy
- Highlight and amplify the critical knowledge about language and skills using language in CCSS for ELA/Literacy necessary for ELs to be successful in school and life
- Provide fewer, clearer, higher standards so teachers can focus on what is most important
- Strengthen ELD opportunities in core content instruction and in targeted ELD in light of new content standards
The California English Language Development Standards: Kindergarten through Grade 12 were developed by English Learner Support Division, California.
