EL Waivers

SEI - Structured English Immersion Waiver

  • Structured English Immersion (SEI) is defined as an English language acquisition process in which all classroom instruction is in English but with the curriculum and instruction design for children who are learning the language. English learners not reasonably fluent in English are provided instruction only in English. SEI includes a sequential English Language Development Program, focused on the acquisition of the language arts, including sheltered English content with primary language support as needed. Adopted English Language Development instructional materials are used. It may include core content delivered through Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English.

  • At any time, including during the school year, a parent or guardian may have his or her child moved into an English language mainstream classroom. (5 CCR 11301 [b])

  • The request may be oral or written and must be granted by the school. A parent/guardian may not remove the student from English Language Development or Academic Instruction designed for English learners.
