ELD Resources and Standards

The California English Language Development Standards (CA ELD Standards) reflect recent and emerging research and theory and are intended to support language development as English learners (ELs) engage in rigorous academic content. The CA ELD Standards provide a foundation for ELs in kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) in California schools so that each EL is able to gain access to academic subjects, engage with them, and meet the state's subject matter standards for college and career readiness.
