Good Morning, I wanted to share Nevada Department of Education's ELD Standards Framework and Instructional Guidance Documents. According to NDE, they were created in response to the urgent need to "ensure equitable practices in the education of English learners in college and career pathways." There are documents for K-12 educators in most content areas.

Hello NVTESOL Community!
We hope you are all doing well and staying healthy! The NVTESOL Committee is happy to invite you all to our first hike! This will be a great time to socialize and discuss our amazing emergent bilingual students, all while being safe outdoors.
Save the date! May 16th at 9 am!
We will be meeting at the Historic Railroad Trail in Boulder City. This is a great and fairly easy hike. We will meet at the parking lot (we will have a sign!) at 9 am to start hiking by 9:10 am.
We will be providing refreshments and snacks.

We look forward to seeing you then!
