ISA Team Resources
The Instructional Services Advisory (ISA Team) is a school-based group that makes decisions to support the needs of each of the school’s English Learners at key points throughout their life cycle in the ELA program; from identification as an English Learner, to evaluation to ensure that they are progressing toward proficiency in English, to the decision to exit a student from ELA services because she or he is able to participate meaningfully and equally in a mainstream classroom.

Stipend per Semester
Stipend is per school per semester. The amount is split among all teachers (administrators / leadership excluded) on the team. For example, if a school has 200 ELs and there are 3 teachers on the ISA Team, each ISA Team member would receive a stipend of $186.67 per semester ($560 divided by 3 members).
