NAELPA Advocating for MLs Monthly Committee Meeting - Reschedule from 5.2.22

The purpose of this committee is to provide support for Multilingual Learners (MLs), and parents and families of MLs, in national, state, and local meetings. The committee works in collaboration with national ML advocates on joint presentations and communications.

It is important to NAELPA to use asset-based terminology when referring to our work and the population of students we serve. We acknowledge that the current name of this organization, The National Association of English Learner Program Administrators (NAELPA), uses English Learner (EL), which is considered deficit based. With current federal legislation using English Learners (ELs) to identify this population the NAELPA board will continue with this usage for clarity purposes in the short term. However, NAELPA will take an active role in advocating for the wider use of assets-based nomenclature and helping to make it more standardized in our field and beyond. For a more detailed description, check out the full NAELPA Asset-Based Terminology statement.
