About Camino Nuevo Charter Academy and Pueblo Nuevo Education Development Group
Camino Nuevo Charter Academy (CNCA) and Pueblo Nuevo Education Development Group (PN-EDG) work collaboratively to ensure the success of a network of charter schools serving students across the PK-Post Secondary continuum in the Greater MacArthur Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. We integrate a strong focus on progressive, research-based academics with a holistic, place-based approach to serving our students. Since opening its doors in 2001, CNCA has grown to 8 schools and nearly 3,500 students. Our goal is that by 2022, 2,000 CNCA graduates are equipped with the skills, knowledge, and worldview necessary to be literate, critical thinkers and independent problem solvers. As a result of this success, 90% will have been accepted to, 80% will have attended and 60% will have graduated from a 4-year college within 6 years.
The Director of Language Instruction (DLI), in collaboration with the Chief Learning Officer (CLO) and the VP of Curriculum and Instruction (VPCI), supports the implementation of a socially-just, research-based, innovative instructional and assessment approach across the domains of designated and integrated English Language Development and bilingual education to ensure success in CNCA’s mission. The DLI works collaboratively with the CLO, VPCI, and the Content Team to support the overall development and implementation of a coherent horizontally and vertically aligned instructional program. The DLI maintains knowledge of current research, best practices and trends on a national and state level to provide direction and guidance to the CLO, VPCI, and Content Team. Ultimately, the DLI works strategically at a systems level to implement structures and strategies to close the opportunity and achievement gap.
