Our work at SEAL focuses on creating long-term systemic change that supports English Learners (ELs) and Dual Language Learners (DLLs). Transforming the system starts in the classroom. Through collaboration among teachers, families, coaches, principals, and district leaders, comprehensive, sustainable, robust, equity-minded, research and values-based school improvement efforts can be generated across different contexts, regions, and systems. Our case study series demonstrates that it is possible.
The Mountain View School District Case Study is the third and last in our case study series that captures the extensive story of a school district’s journey to SEAL implementation. While our evaluation research and policy briefs allow readers to learn how SEAL improved teaching and learning, and how students demonstrated stronger engagement and positive outcomes, Social Policy and Research Associates helped us document three district’s unique approaches to SEAL implementation filled with examples and reflection from school district leaders and educators.
