System Conditions that Support Effectiveness
Each level of the school system (state, county, district, school, pre-school) has leaders and educators who are knowledgeable of and responsive to the strengths and needs of English learners and their communities and who utilize valid assessment and other data systems that inform instruction and continuous improvement. Each level of the system provides resources and tiered support to ensure strong programs and build the capacity of teachers and staff to leverage the strengths and meet the needs of English learners.

Start Your Improvement Journey
After exploring this principle, we suggest that LEAs select an element to improve in their system. Below is an example of an improvement journey focused on an element in this principle. Following the example is a link to a template for LEAs to begin their own improvement journey. This Needs Assessment can help LEAs select a principle or element to focus their efforts.
Illustrative Case Examples
The examples below were submitted by local educational agencies (LEAs) and demonstrate Principle Three and its corresponding elements in action. The illustrative examples will be updated as new submissions become available.
