English Learners

Multilingual Academic Support (MAS)


The Multilingual Academic Support (MAS)unit provides professional development, Title III technical assistance, and coordinates network meetings, as well as offers EL authorization (Bilingual Teacher Training Programs (BTTP)) classes to teachers and administrators.

Our goal is to provide tools to districts and LEAs that support the success of English Learners in the learning of English and of academic language in a rigorous standards-based curriculum.
