CAELA Network Participating States
The United States is experiencing a growing immigrant population across the country, with new populations settling in states that had limited numbers of immigrants twenty years ago. CAL is working with CAELA Network participating states to build state capacity to provide quality professional development for practitioners working with adult English language learners. Work with states is guided by the Framework for Quality Professional Development to identify states’ needs and track their progress. CAL staff provide technical assistance to states through a systematic planning, implementation, and evaluation process based on the framework.
All states and practitioners working with adult English language learners can access the resources of CAL and the CAELA Network Web site.
The states participating in the CAELA Network are listed below the map.

CAL uses its Framework for Quality Professional Development to help states assess their needs and to customize technical assistance for each state. CAL staff provide assistance that includes on-site meetings and trainings, analysis of data to inform program improvement planning, conference calls, online discussions, development and review of resources and tools, study groups, and mentoring programs. States not participating in the project are welcome to access the tools and products available on the CAELA Network Web site.
