EL RISE! is funded by a grant from the California Department of Education to support implementation of the visionary 2017 CA English Learner Roadmap policy.
Over the next three years, the three agencies will work with and through 20 County Offices of Education who collectively serve 76.7% of the state’s English learners - partnering with county offices to develop capacity to support LEAs in making meaning of the Roadmap principles, understanding their English learner/dual language learner population, becoming familiar with research on dual language development, developing local implementation plans, and implementing those plans across multiple roles and parts of the system.
