Bilingual Instructional Assistants

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