ELD & Title I



Overview/Mission Statement

The Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) is committed to serving students and their families through a variety of State and Federal categorically-funded programs.  As a part of the ELD and Categorical Programs under the direction of Adelita Martinez, the English Language Development and Title I support providers coordinate resources to support our English Language learners and our students who need additional academic support. We assure that families are fully informed of the programs and services available to their children at all of our schools and invite them to participate and take leadership positions in our various district and site advisory committees. We offer translations and facilitate acquiring translations of documents into Chinese, Spanish and Arabic and other languages whenever possible.  Our goal is for our students to graduate AUSD with skills and experiences that will make them successful in their post secondary education.

English Learner Services

AUSD assists students with languages other than English in their backgrounds to develop proficiency in speaking, understanding, reading, and writing English.  The English Language Development support team supports the sites’ English Language Development (ELD) programs, providing services to over 2,333 English Language Learners (ELLs).  We conduct the initial assessment of new students with a language other than English, place them in appropriate programs according to their levels of English language proficiency, and monitor their progress, including administering the annual assessment of listening, speaking, reading, and writing on the California English Language Development Test (CELDT) to all K-12 English Language Learners.  District ELD support staff assists sites in creating their English Learner Advisory Committees (ELL parent/guardian groups known as ELACs) and also conduct district-wide District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) meetings on a regular basis.

Economic Impact Aid (EIA), Title III, and English Language Acquisition Program (ELAP) grants provide funding to sites for K-5 ELD Resource Teacher and Bilingual Paraprofessional support to ELLs and 6-12 Site ELD Coordinator and Bilingual Paraprofessional support to ELLs.  The grants also provide ELL funding for supplemental educational materials, 6-12 intervention reading sections, math support, professional development for teachers and paras, and ongoing SIM coaching for teachers in grades six through twelve.

Title 1 Services

The Title 1 program assists families and students who are struggling academically in the district’s four elementary and two middle schools that have the largest numbers of economically disadvantaged students.  This program provides additional teachers, coaches, and paraprofessionals who coordinate intervention programs in reading/language arts and mathematics, materials for those programs, professional development for staff, and family involvement activities that encourage and help students achieve at increasingly higher academic levels.


NOTE: For the 2016-17 school year and beyond, districts are no longer required to provide school choice.  Additional details can be found at the California Department of Education's Program Improvement School Choice FAQ page: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/ac/ti/schoolchoicefaqs.asp 


NOTE: For the 2016-17 school year and beyond, districts are no longer required to provide Supplemental Educational Services (SES).
