English Language Development
The San Juan Unified staff work closely with school sites to ensure all students receive English Language Development (ELD) instruction during the school day. Typically, students receive a minimum of 30 minutes per day of English language support. Additional supplemental support for long-term English learners is also available.
Staff have been hired to support our Farsi, Dari, Pashto, Arabic, and Spanish-speaking families and students. They provide resources and serve as a bridge between schools, families, district and community-based organizations.
