ENGLISH LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT (ELD) STANDARDS & INSTRUCTIONAL RESOURCES (Virginia Department of Education)
The purpose of this webpage is to provide important information and links to resources that support educators in providing equitable instruction and services to ELs (English Learners) across VA divisions totaling over 105,000, who speak over 240 languages.
Divisions across Virginia serve a diverse population of students from different language, learning, and cultural backgrounds. These students bring a unique set of assets that have the potential to enrich the experiences of all learners and educators.
The Virginia Department of Education works for the embodiment of an asset-based approach to educating ELs.
