English Learner Program

The Claremont Unified School District is committed to the academic achievement of all students. This webpage has been created to assist parents and teachers by providing access to information relevant to English Learners and English language acquisition.

Our goal is to have students graduate from CUSD with the academic and social skills and experiences that equip them to succeed in the global environment of the 21st century. It is our responsibility to meet this need and prepare our students for the challenges they will face.

In CUSD, all certificated staff (teachers) are required to have an English Language Learner authorization or hold a CLAD (Cross-Cultural Language and Academic Development) or BCLAD CLAD (Bilingual Cross-Cultural Language and Academic Development) credential.

Parent Involvement

The Claremont Unified School District strongly supports the involvement of all parents, including those parents of English Learners, in the educational process of their children. Parents are encouraged to participate in their child’s school sites’ English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). Each participating school site holds a minimum of two general sessions per school year. This functioning body advises the school site on programs and services for English Language Learners. By participating on your child’s school sites’ ELAC, you have the opportunity to serve as a committee member of our District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC). This district level committee consists of parents, teachers, administrators, and district personnel who are interested in becoming knowledgeable about and more involved with the English Learner program.
