The mission of the Multilingual Education Department is to ensure rigorous, explicit, high-quality language instruction that prepares students to be productive members of the community and to achieve high social and academic success.


The vision of the Multilingual Education Department is to prepare and inspire students to become effective and confident communicators to successfully participate in a global community.

Multilingual California Project - MOU for VUSD - VUSD has received an invitation from the CDE's Multilingual California Project to be one of the select LEAs in the state to implement the project goals and build the capacity of LEAs to implement the California English Learner Roadmap. This plan is grounded in the Quality Professional Learning Standards, and utilizes an equity-centered, continuous improvement process called Liberatory Design. To this end, VUSD has received a grant to invest in professional development in two important teaching models: Guided Language Acquisition Design (GLAD) and WRITE. We are very proud to have been selected to contribute to the Multilingual California effort.

Vista Unified School District is committed to an effective model of teaching and learning for English Learners and Dual Language Learners that is endorsed by the California Department of Education and the San Diego County Office of Education
