English Language Learners

The Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD) is committed to ensuring that all students receive the education and supports necessary to succeed. In support of this, the District is committed to ensuring that our English learners receive the educational supports needed to attain the goals set forth by the California Department of Education:
  • Ensure that English learners acquire full proficiency in English as quickly and effectively as possible while attaining parity with native speakers of English.
  • Ensure that English learners within an appropriate amount of time, achieve the same grade-level academic standards we expect of all students.
In order to attain these goals, IUSD offers our English learner various programs in support of their English language development (ELD) including dual immersion programs and targeted academic instructional programs. For additional information regarding support offered to our English learners or questions regarding specific programs offered by the District, please contact the IUSD State and Federal Programs office at (310) 419-2779 or your school for more specific information.
