The English Language Development Program (ELD) was created in 1991 to facilitate three special needs of English Learners at Santa Monica High School:

. To develop excellence in English
. To promote student academic achievement
. To nurture student self-esteem

ELD is designed to assist English language learners to speak, listen, read, and write Standard English. The program includes targeted courses in English as well as sheltered English instruction in the core subjects of English, mathematics, science, and social studies.

English language learners are assessed and assigned, based on individual student need, to appropriate classes. Each student's needs are unique, so each student's progress and schedule may look different. Students are routinely assessed and transitioned into courses intended to match their development in English.



English Language Advisory Committee

Each California Public School from Kindergarten through grade 12, with 21 or more English learners must form a functional English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). The ELAC is a committee for parents of English Learners.

The purpose of the ELAC is to provide guidance and advice to the principal and staff with regards to the needs of students who are learning English as a second language. In achieving this purpose, the ELAC shall:
  1. Assist in the development of the school-wide needs assessment.
  2. Assist in ways to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.
  3. Advise the principal in the development of a site plan for English Learners. Submit recommendations to the school site council for consideration of inclusion in the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).
  4. Receive training materials and training, planned in full consultation with committee members, to assist carrying out members in their legal responsibilities.
  5. Elect at least one ELAC member to the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC).

Comité Asesor de Estudiantes de Inglés (ELAC)
