National Clearinghouse for English Language Acquisition Revamps its Website

NCELA is proud to present a newly designed website (still at http://www.ncela.gwu.edu) that combines high-quality and oft-requested information about the English learner population with new features to make navigation easier and more intuitive. The website has a distinctive new look, and a thorough restructuring of the front page, bringing up-to-the-minute information to the fore. Visitors will find it easier to access key online content areas including information on federal grants, EL data and demographics, professional development, promising practices in EL education, and the full suite of NCELA resources.

Visitors can still keep abreast of recent additions to the website or upcoming events in the What's New and New Resources sections on the homepage.

NCELA is also launching a set of “featured topic” pages which bring together web resources from NCELA and other organizations on one easy-to-navigate page. Find information on:

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)
English Learners with Special Needs
Young ELs
Native American/Alaska Native Students
College and Career
Adult ELs
Foreign Languages

Federal and other data sources on EL students are gathered together in NCELA’s new data and demographics section. You can explore state data, follow the links in our English Learner Data Clearinghouse, or view some of our county-by-county maps on the EL population.

NCLEA continues to roll out new social and community features such as integrated access to our Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube accounts. Their archived webinars are now on YouTube for easy viewing for professional development purposes.

As always NCELA provides up-to-date information on US Department of Education federal grant programs, including the Title III State Formula Grants, the National Professional Development Program, and the Native American and Alaska Native Children in School Program.
