ERC is happy to announce our engagement as the independent program evaluator for California League of Schools newly funded program, The Pedagogical Paradigm: Instructional Routines for Educators of English Learners. The four-year program, funded through the USDE’s National Professional Development program, will help elementary school educators increase their language instruction and family engagement skills.
Professional development will be led by Dr. Kate Kinsella and Theresa Hancock, known for their proven, effective curriculum and strategies for helping English Learners excel. School districts implementing the program are Moreno Valley, Hemet, Elk Grove, and Franklin-McKinley.
ERC is just completing evaluation of a similar program, funded through USDE's Invest in Innovation Program. Led by California League of Schools with teachers in Moreno Valley USD, program results indicated that 83% of English Learners were re-classified as Fluent English Proficient by the start of grade 9.
