English Language Acquisition Plans (ELAP)

At MCSD, each EL learner receives an English Language Acquisition Plan. The ELA Plans are an integral part of the ELs instructional plan as it provides detailed information around learner performance and needs. In addition, the plans are a central tool for collaboration between educators, parents and learners. ELA Plans include the following:

  • EL Status
  • Summative and formative assessment data
  • Language goals within each content area and by individual student proficiency level as well as language domain (reading, writing, listening, speaking)
  • Language objectives specific to vocabulary, sentence form and linguistic discourse
  • Collaborative planning platform/lesson notes
  • Observational notes
  • Documentation of collaborative team members
