Evaluation Goals

The Hayward Unified School District's English Learner Master Plan is a result of collaboration and commitment to meeting and exceeding the needs of our community's EL students and families. This plan works to not just ensure compliance, but to provide all of our students with a world class education. While HUSD’s EL Master Plan uses our Board Goals and Objectives as underpinnings for our work with ELs, the EL Master Plan’s evaluation goals will guide us to optimal results for our students:

Evaluation Goal 1: Implementation

EL programs are fully implemented as described in the Master Plan for English Learners

Evaluation Goal 2: English Proficiency

ELs will make steady progress in developing academic English, and attain academic English language proficiency as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Evaluation Goal 3: Academic Progress

ELs will make steady progress in core academic subjects. ELs in our district five years or longer will meet grade-level standards in core academic subjects.

Evaluation Goal 4: Decrease Risk of Failure

Rates for ELs and RFEPs in categories indicating risk for school failure are no greater than those for English Only students.

Evaluation Goal 5: Biliteracy

Students enrolled in Bilingual Alternative and Dual Language Immersion programs will master language skills in Spanish as well as English. Other languages may be added, as requested and feasible.

Evaluation Goal 6: Parent Engagement

Parents of ELs and RFEPs participate meaningfully in their children’s education.

Evaluation Goal 7: Multicultural Proficiency

ELs and RFEPs will develop multicultural proficiency.
