English Language Development Standards

On November 7, 2019, the State Board of Education (SBE) granted approval to begin the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) process to adopt the WIDA English Language Development Standards for Kindergarten to Grade 12. 

The English Language Development Standards are used specifically to support language development for English learners. These standards represent the social, instructional and academic language students use to engage with peers, educators and the curriculum in schools.  The standards highlight the language needed to meet academic expectations as described by state, college and career ready standards, and other content standards.
