The purpose of the Pomona Unified School District's Master Plan for English Learners is to ensure that schools provide equitable opportunities for the acquisition of English proficiency and academic achievement for all English Learners.  In addition, it will acquaint administrators, teachers and parents with federal, state and district policies, programs, procedures, resources, and staff development opportunities. The Master Plan has been developed to ensure three goals:
