Bilingual Instructional Assistants

Bilingual Instructional Assistants (BIAs) play an integral role in the academic success of Emergent Bilinguals throughout the Compton Unified School District. Daily, our BIAs provide language and content-area support for Emergent Bilinguals. Serving students with varying proficiency levels, Compton Unified BIAs utilize a wide range of research-based strategies to ensure access and equity for Emergent Bilinguals. Specifically, BIAs use the Support Form and Template (see below) to assist and monitor their students' language progress.

Bilingual Instructional Assistants analyze ELPAC Writing Task Types.
