ESSA Implementation

Professional Development Needs for ELL Educators

Problem Statement: In December 2015, President of the United States, Barack Obama, signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which reauthorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 and goes into effect in the 2017-18 school year. Within the statute, SEAs are reminded of the critical role they play in providing necessary training to teachers serving special student populations to include teachers of English language learners (ELLs).
Purpose: The purpose of this project is to provide relevant data to the ND ELL director for planning targeted professional development for ND educators serving ELLs.
Priority Area: ESSA Implementation
Expected Outcomes:
1. ND DPI has the required information to plan targeted PD for ND educators serving ELLs.
