English Language Development

The English Language Development (ELD) program at John Muir Middle School is specifically designed for students who classify as English Language Learners. The objective is to accelerate English language learning and increase academic achievement in the core content areas. Our ELD program relies on building language and literacy around the four language domains: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. The CA ELD standards provide the framework for increasing language proficiency in EL’s. The goal is for students to be able to fully participate in the classroom instruction and reclassifying students as Fluent English Proficient is a top priority.
