English Learners


Overview

How can we help English language learners successfully meet Nevada’s standards as we transition to more rigorous standards, such as the Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards? This page provides educators and others with resources that focus on the needs of English language learners.

    The Common Core en Espanol were developed as a collaborative effort between the California Department of Education, CCSSO, and the San Diego County Office of Education. It is not simply a translation of the CCSS into Spanish, but includes "linguistic augmentation" to address points of learning, skills and concepts that are specific to Spanish language and literacy, as well as transferable language learnings between English and Spanish as provided in educational settings where students are instructed in both languages.
