Summary: Rio Vista Elementary School enrolls a substantial number of students for whom English is not a first and/or academic language. Last summer Rio Vista implemented a Grammar-Based ELD program for their students during their summer program. The school is continuing with the implementation of High Intensity Language Training for staff. Advanced training and coaching will be provided for staff during the 2011-2012 school years. This is for teachers that were initially trained in the summer of 2011.

Services will be provided to site leaders who were trained in 2011 and are ready to learn and utilize advanced methods for linking grammar-based ELD to reading comprehension and academic writing.

A second training session will be provided to the staff who did not participate in the summer 2011 training and that need training in the 10 base ELD methods, instructional principles and the use of daily language objectives for their instruction. This group will also extend their knowledge of how to analyze, interpret and monitor grammar-based ELD instruction.
