English Learners

The English Learner and Assessment Center

The English Learner and Assessment Center oversees and maintains services provided to English Learners (ELs) and their families in support of state and federal regulations. The main function is to provide and ensure high quality school-based programs that assist ELs to reach proficiency in English while meeting and exceeding state content standards. The English Learner and Assessment Center responds to requests for information and assesses for EL program eligibility. ELPAC testing and information can also be accessed through our department. Our team ELD teachers support educators in implementing best practice techniques for ELs and our translation and interpretation services facilitates communication with EL families.

Our Mission:

The mission of the VUSD English Learner program is to "establish, implement and sustain a high quality, rigorous language instruction educational program to ensure all English Language Learners attain proficiency in English and meet the California Academic Content Standards." The English learner instructional program options were developed to ensure that this mission is fulfilled for every English learner enrolled in Vista schools. The ultimate goal of the English Learner program is to support English learners to acquire English as rapidly as possible and to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of grade level content standards on state and local measures.


Nuestra Misión:

La misión del programa de estudiantes de inglés como segundo idioma del distrito escolar de Vista es establecer, implementar y facilitar un programa de enseñanza de inglés riguroso y de alta calidad que garantiza que todo estudiante logre dominar el inglés y cumpla con los estándares de contenido académico de California. Los distintos programas de instrucción para estos estudiantes fueron desarrollados para asegurar que todo estudiante matriculado en las escuela de Vista cumpla esta misión. El objetivo final del programa es apoyar a cada estudiante para que domine el inglés en la mayor brevedad posible y demuestre su conocimiento y comprensión del idioma— así como de los estándares de contenido— correspondiente a su nivel de grado en pruebas de aptitud estatal y local.
