The English Language Learner Program Survey for Principals

by Matthew Grady and Laura O'Dwyer

REL Northeast & Islands at Education Development Center, in partnership with the English Language Learners Alliance, has developed a new survey tool--The English Language Learner Program Survey for Principals--to help state education departments collect consistent data on the education of English language learner students. Designed for school principals, the survey gathers information on school-level policies and practices for educating English language learner students, the types of professional development related to educating these students that principals have received and would like to receive, principals' familiarity with state guidelines and standards for educating these students, and principals' beliefs about educating these students. This report describes the survey in greater detail, looking at how to use it and how it was developed. It also includes the English Language Learner Program Survey for Principals developed for the Rhode Island Department of Education. Two appendices include: (1) Related Literature; and (2) Developing the Survey. [This report was written in collaboration with the English Language Learner Alliance.]
