The AIM Institute [Affirming Instruction for Multilingual Learners]

This interactive professional learning opportunity is designed to deepen participants’ understanding of the California ELD Standards, designated and integrated ELD instruction, and the Summative ELPAC exam. Through a wide-range of learning experiences, educators will learn how to use these elements to design meaningful instructional sequences and create educational spaces that lift up the promise, power, and genius of multilingual learners.  

Educators from Sonoma County districts that receive Title III funds are eligible to attend this professional learning series at no cost, which includes registration fees and sub costs. To ensure that all districts have the opportunity to register at least two people, registration will be divided up into two windows:

  • Sonoma County districts who receive Title III funds may register up to TWO educators. Registration fees and sub costs will be covered for both registrants.
  • Districts who would like to send more than two people may register additional educators in Round 2.
