Multilingual Services

This department supports schools in our district to ensure that Multilingual Learners (MLs), also known as English Learners (ELs), have equal access to high-quality education and the opportunity to achieve their full academic potential. Santa Rosa City Schools recognizes that MLs have a double curricular load- they shall become proficient in academic English, and they shall master all of the academic content required of all students in California. This means that MLs require additional services to ensure that they acquire English and have access to the full curriculum in a way that makes instruction comprehensible and meaningful.

English Learner Master Plan

Santa Rosa City Schools English Learner Master Plan is an overarching master plan that brings together all the many aspects of learning, teaching, and supporting our English Learners across the district. It is not limited to the Department of Multilingual Services but applies to all departments, sites, classrooms, services, and individuals who dedicate their work to cultivating a successful future for our students. The EL Master Plan maps out clearly our collective responsibility to our English Learners, their families, and our community.
