English Learner Development

The Hemet Unified School District English Learner Master Plan supports the California English Learner Roadmap Policy in both principle and practice. It is our firm belief that our English learner students are assets to our schools and our community, and we strive to provide an educational experience that supports their academic achievement. 

On July 12, 2017, the California State Board of Education approved the California English Learner Roadmap Policy:  Educational Programs and Services for English Learners. This policy embraces linguistic diversity as an asset while providing the supports necessary to allow English learners meaningful access to intellectually rich and engaging curriculum (EL Roadmap, 2017).  The Roadmap is built upon four principles:

  1. Assets-Oriented and Needs-Responsive Schools
  2. Intellectual Quality of Instruction and Meaningful Access
  3. System Conditions that Support Effectiveness
  4. Alignment and Articulation Within and Across Systems

English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC)
The ELPAC is the required state test for English language proficiency that must be given to students whose primary language is a language other than English. 
Helpful ELPAC Resources for Parents:
State Seal of Biliteracy
Information about the California State Seal of Biliteracy program and its requirements for students and parents.
The State Seal of Biliteracy (SSB), marked by a gold seal on the diploma or transcript, recognizes high school graduates who have attained a high level of proficiency in speaking, reading, and writing one or more languages in addition to English.

Biliteracy Pathways Recognitions
The Biliteracy Pathway Recognitions are established to recognize preschool, kindergarten, elementary, and middle school students who have demonstrated progress toward proficiency in speaking, listening, reading, and writing in one or more languages in addition to English.
The three Biliteracy Pathway Recognitions available are:
  1. Biliteracy Program Participation Recognition
    The Biliteracy Program Participation Recognition is available to students enrolled in programs leading to biliteracy in preschool, kindergarten, elementary, and middle school. As a participation recognition, this award is provided to all students enrolled in the program and is not based on the student’s proficiency. This recognition is an entry on the path to biliteracy or multiliteracy.

  2. Home Language Development Recognition
    The Home Language Development Recognition is available to emergent bilingual students with a home language other than English in preschool, kindergarten, elementary, and middle school. This recognition is provided to students who demonstrate that they are continuing to develop the home language by engaging in age-appropriate activities in the home language. This recognition is an entry on the path to biliteracy or multiliteracy. In order to obtain this recognition is by filing out the parent survey that will be emailed to families.

  3. Biliteracy Attainment Recognition
    The Biliteracy Attainment Recognition is available to students at the end of elementary school (the grade level depends on the program model, usually either grade five or six), and the end of middle school (the grade level depends on the program model, usually grade eight). This recognition is based on proficiency and is awarded to students who meet specific proficiency criteria in English and one or more languages in addition to English. This recognition is aligned with the State Seal of Biliteracy requirements and is an indication that if a student continues on this path in high school they will be prepared to meet the requirements to earn the State Seal of Biliteracy.
