Are you in charge of EL programming, and are you grappling with program models, assessment, language intake, teacher evaluation, and other pressing programming decisions related to ELL? Join this network of EL program coordinators to meet, greet, and extend networking and working relationships in the same field.

This Network will:

  • Provide a networking opportunity for all area EL program coordinators/supervisors.
  • Share and develop new and innovative EL programming ideas.
  • Look deeper into programming obstacles and collaborate on solutions.
  • Review essential leadership skills to advocate for marginalized populations.
  • Address ESSA changes and how it will impact programming.
  • Address EL teacher evaluations.
  • Collaborate on trends in programming and setting up systems of success. 

This network is participant driven and content will be based off the needs determined by participants.
