Instruction in English as a second language (ESL) is distinct from remediation in English. Students enrolled in ESL credit coursework are foreign language learners who require additional language training in English, require support to successfully complete degree and transfer requirements in English, or require both of the above. Under AB 705, a student enrolled in ESL instruction will maximize the probability that the student will enter and complete degree and transfer requirements in English within three years.
Additional guidance on assessment and placement will be developed by an ESL Subcommittee of the AB 705 Implementation Committee. More information on the group's meeting schedule, agenda and work products will be placed here as it becomes available.
Questions about the AB 705 Implementation Committee and Subcommittees can be directed to Kathy Carroll at firstname.lastname@example.org.
