The guidance will help ensure that these students are given the opportunity to be challenged with advanced coursework, as many bilingual students have academic advantages in the classroom. These advantages include literacy development, problem solving-skills and other cognitive areas. The guidance also aims to recognize the diversity within the EL student population, including students with disabilities and students who are long term- EL’s.
