This guide provides research-based guidelines to support state and district leaders in implementing reforms for ELs outlined by the U.S. Department of Education in 2011. The reforms are broken into four main principles: "1) achieving college- and career-ready expectations for all students; 2) developing differentiated recognition, accountability, and support systems; 3) supporting effective instruction and leadership; and 4) reducing duplication and unnecessary burden." This guide "focuses on the implementation of reforms related to ELLs [ELs] across the first three principles."
