English Standards

The California English Language Development Standards (CA ELD Standards) describe the knowledge, skills, and abilities in English as a new language that are expected at exit from each proficiency level, with the highest level, Bridging, being aligned to the California’s Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts, Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects. These exit descriptors signal high expectations for ELs to progress through the academic English language they need to access and engage with.
