The English Language Development Standard Course of Study (ELD SCS) describes what limited English proficient students should know and be able to do at each level of proficiency along the K-12 continuum. It will assist English as a Second Language teachers in planning lessons and strategies which will target the language learning needs of individual students to ensure that they progress toward full English language proficiency. The SCS will also assist classroom teachers in modifying instruction in the content areas to match the English language proficiency levels of their students
