Welcome to the CUSD English Learner Program


The Claremont Unified School District is committed to the academic achievement of all students. This webpage has been created to assist parents and teachers by providing access to information relevant to English Learners and English language acquisition.

ELA/ELD Framework

The 2014 ELA/ELD Framework has been developed to support and incorporate the California State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects (CA CCSS for ELA/Literacy) and the California English Language Development Standards (CA ELD Standards). The SBE (California State Board of Education) adopted the ELA/ELD Framework on July 9, 2014


Advisory Committees


The Claremont Unified School District strongly supports the involvement of all parents, including those parents of English Learners, in the educational process of their children.

Parents are encouraged to participate in their child’s school sites’ English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). Each participating school site holds a minimum of two general sessions per school year. This functioning body advises the school site on programs and services for English Language Learners.

By participating on your child’s school sites’ ELAC, you have the opportunity to serve as a committee member of our District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC). This district level committee consists of parents, teachers, administrators, and district personnel who are interested in becoming knowledgeable about and more involved with the English Learner program.

ELD Standards

The CA ELD Standards are designed to increase to the language knowledge, skills, and abilities that are important for English Learners to be successful in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies, as well as other subjects while developing English proficiency.  English Learners must also have full access to high quality content while they are moving through the ELD continuum.


The CA ELD Standards are intended to support these goals by providing fewer, clearer, and higher standards, as explained below:

  1. Fewer – standards which are necessary and essential for development and success;
  2. Clearer –standards that have clear links to curriculum and assessments; and
  3. Higher – standards that align with the rigor of the California State Standards for ELA/Literacy, Math, as well as the Next Generation Science Standards, and history/social studies standards.
