English learners (ELs) at the secondary level who are approaching high school graduation face unique challenges. Curricular requirements including English language development classes, graduation requirements, and for some, special education can create complex scheduling challenges, and intricate accessibility issues.
As schools engage in articulation activities to determine student placement in the upcoming school year, it's important to identify and eliminate structural barriers that may post challenges to ELs' path towards graduation.
This webinar discussed what research has shown about the academic trajectories of ELs at the secondary level, including the trajectories of newcomers, students who have been labeled long-term ELs, ELs with disabilities, and former ELs.
