Approval of SEAL

SEAL provides intensive professional development to preschool and elementary school teachers through workshop sessions, coaching, and collaborative reflection and planning. After its initiation in 2008 and following a successful pilot phase in Silicon Valley, the SEAL model has expanded rapidly and is now being implemented in 20 districts, including Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), the nation’s second-largest public school district. Loyola Marymount University’s Center for Equity for English Learners (CEEL) received a $2.7M federal grant to study SEAL implementation in LAUSD. []
