Abstract

The Office of English Language Acquisition (OELA) is supporting and amplifying the Department of
Education’s goal to create pathways for global engagement by working to provide every student with a
pathway to multilingualism while ensuring equitable access to a high-quality education for English learners
(ELs) who historically have been underserved.
In addition to having a diverse and qualified multilingual educator workforce, key components to ensuring
high-quality and equitable education that fosters multilingualism for ELs include the following:
• Robust family engagement with multilingual families
• Early learning opportunities that help young multilingual learners (MLs) develop proficiency in their home
  language and in English
• Implementation of effective and equitable dual language programs
• Removal of barriers toward ELs’ acquisition of the Seal of Biliteracy
