Our Mission:

The mission of the VUSD English Learner program is to "establish, implement and sustain a high quality, rigorous language instruction educational program to ensure all English Language Learners attain proficiency in English and meet the California Academic Content Standards."  The English learner instructional program options were developed to ensure that this mission is fulfilled for every English learner enrolled in Vista schools.  The ultimate goal of the English Learner program is to support English learners to acquire English as rapidly as possible and to demonstrate  their knowledge and understanding of grade level content standards on state and local measures.  

Nuestra Misión:

La misión del programa de estudiantes de inglés como segundo idioma del distrito escolar de Vista es establecer, implementar y facilitar un programa de enseñanza de inglés riguroso y de alta calidad que garantiza que todo estudiante logre dominar el inglés y cumpla con los estándares de contenido académico de California. Los distintos programas de instrucción para estos estudiantes fueron desarrollados para asegurar que todo estudiante matriculado en las escuela de Vista cumpla esta misión. El objetivo final del programa es apoyar a cada estudiante para que domine el inglés en la mayor brevedad posible y demuestre su conocimiento y comprensión del idioma— así como de los estándares de contenido— correspondiente a su nivel de grado en pruebas de aptitud estatal y local.
