English Learners

Welcome to the English Learner Department

at Pacific Charter Institute.


Our mission is to promote equity and student achievement for students with diverse cultural, racial, and linguistic backgrounds. We are working towards biliteracy, educational equity, and 21st Century success for all.

This guide has been developed to help parents understand what the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are and how these standards will impact the academic success of English learners once they are implemented in the classroom. The guide provides information for parents to use when speaking with their child’s teacher, principal and other school staff to make sure he or she receives the learning supports to succeed academically.
The Toolkit includes:
• Background information on the opportunities and challenges that the Common Core Standards present for curriculum, instruction and assessment of English Learners
• Focus on Common Core teaching practices and what instruction should look like in the classroom
• Description of extra help English learners will need to meet the new Standards
• Talking points and questions for parents to insert the needs of English Learners in Common Core Standards dialogues and discussions at their district or school site and the CCSS can Help Your Children Succeed in School
