WIDA changes afoot…

Hey, all. I just got this in my inbox. If you are a K-12 teacher, you likely will get an announcement from your LEA, but I thought I’d give you a heads-up.  A link to the flyer they refer to is below.




Announcing: 2019 Instructional Framework for WIDA’s ELD Standards

In an effort to support educators who work with English language learners, WIDA is continually reviewing and updating resources supporting the implementation of its English Language Development Standards. The five standards will not change, but we have listened to feedback and comments from educators across the consortium to inform this work while also addressing 21st Century classroom learning expectations.

The attached flyer includes an overview of the draft instructional framework and a roadmap of steps within a three-year implementation plan. Educators have the opportunity to participate in a public input period from March 22–April 20, 2018. This will be your chance to review the draft and share your reactions. Starting on March 22, the drafts and survey for giving input will be available at wida.us/standards. Please make plans to participate and help spread the word!

Feel free to contact us with questions or concerns at any time.
