Below is a description of the new (2019/20) program codes for Language Instruction Programs in CALPADS.   CALPADS adopted these changes in July 2019 and they go into effect for the 2019/20 school year.  Previously, the instructional strategy code was "tagged" as a course characteristics.  It is no longer being collected at the course level, since some students may receive different instruction within the same class.  Now, for the 2019/20 school year, it has been moved to be associated with individual students.  They must also have a new program record.

As described in Flash 163, in November 2016, California voters approved Proposition 58, also known as CA Ed.G.E. (California Education for a Global Economy, pronounced California “Edge”). The purpose of this initiative is to ensure that all children in California public schools receive the highest quality education, master the English language, and access high-quality, innovative, and research-based language programs that prepare them to fully participate in a global economy. More information on the CA Ed.G.E. Initiative, including links to the law and regulations, can be found on the CDE CA Education for a Global Economy Initiative web page at: https://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/el/er/caedge.asp. Further information is provided in the CA Ed.G.E. Initiative Handbook for School Districts and County Offices of Education, available on the CDE website here: https://www.cde.ca.gov/sp/el/er/documents/edgehandbook.pdf

 In response to this initiative Language Instruction Program codes were created to include not only program designed for English Learners to develop English, but also for English Only students to develop fluency in a second language in a specific program.  The best examples of this are probably Education Program code 301, in which an English Only student would be considered participating in the LIP, and 304, which may be a class or whole school in which all students are EO, but classes are taught in Spanish. See definitions below.  These are “programs” versus a foreign language “class.”
