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.
