Resources to Support Multilingual Learners
With support from the Emerging Bilingual Collaborative and in partnership with the English Learner Workforce Investment initiative (EL-WIN), the Greater LA Education Foundation (GLA) is facilitating free technical assistance, including resource sharing and dedicated grant writing, to help districts unlock state funding.
Below are sample materials that draw on best practices for multilingual learners, early childhood systems, and other areas that districts can use to develop their UPK state plan and apply for related state funding for Residency Grants, Early Educator Teacher Development Grant, and/or Classified School Employee Teacher Credentialing Program Grants.
Additional resources will be added as they become available.
