New CAL Publication: “Helping Newcomer Students Succeed in Secondary Schools and Beyond”

The Center for Applied Linguistics is pleased to share a new online resource, “Helping Newcomer Students Succeed in Secondary Schools and Beyond.” This publication is based on a 3-year research project, Exemplary Programs for Newcomer English Language Learners at the Secondary Level, conducted by CAL on behalf of the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Written for educators and policymakers, the report describes the status of middle and high school newcomer programs across the United States based on analyses of CAL’s national newcomer program database and the case studies of 10 exemplary sites. The report finds that a variety of program models can be successful when crafted with the needs of the community’s specific newcomers in mind and highlights design features and policies that are working well to put these learners on the path to high school graduation and postsecondary opportunities.

The full report and an executive summary are now available as free downloadable PDFs on the CALwebsite.
