Administrators are the linchpin of implementation - the leader who articulates what needs to be done for English learners, the supporter for teachers and staff engaged in the hard work of changing practices, a reminder to keep the focus on students, and the manager of critical resources needed to support the work. This series of five modules (over a two-year period) is designed to support district and site administrators as they take up the challenge of doing all of this to enact the comprehensive En​glish Learner Roadmap.​
