Update About ACPS World Languages Program

At the School Board work session on September 25th, the board stated that they were pleased with the progress of the pilot program at Cale Elementary School and would like to move forward with expanding similar programs to other schools. They recognize we will not be able to expand programs to all schools in a short period of time, and have asked the Department of Instruction to continue to expand incrementally each year to new schools as opportunities and interest arise. They asked for the creation of a process by which a particular language could be selected at a school and to draw up plans on how expanded elementary school programs would impact middle and high school programs. Finally, they asked for a 5-7 years plan and to return with budgetary proposals aligned with continued expansion later this year.

We are attaching the Power Point Presentation used on the School Board work session so you can check it out and see the possibilities that we may have available in ACPS.

Noticias Sobre Programas  Multilingües en Albemarle County:

En la sesión de trabajo de la junta escolar el 25 de septiembre , la junta dijo que estaban satisfechos con el progreso del programa bilingüe en la Escuela Primaria de Cale y que les gustaría seguir adelante con la expansión de programas similares en otras escuelas . Reconocen que la división escolar no esta en capacidad de ampliar los programas en todas las escuelas en solamente un año, por eso han pedido que el Departamento de Instrucción continue ampliando progresivamente cada año en más escuelas nuevos programas  bilingües. Pidieron la creación de un proceso por el cual un idioma en particular podría estar seleccionado por una escuela. También han solicitado un plan sobre cómo los programas  bilingües en las escuelas primarias afectarán los programas de idiomas en las escuelas secundarias. La junta quiere que el Departamento de Instrucción traiga un plan de  5-7 años y regrese con una propuesta presupuestaria alineada con la continua expansión del programa para finales de año. 

Adjuntamos la presentación en Power Point utilizada en la reunión para que pueda chequearlo y ver las posibilidades que podriamos  tener disponible en ACPS.

Si le gustaria obtener más informacion, por favor lea el artículo de Cville Tomorrow donde encontrará un resumen de la session de trabajo de la Junta Escolar  y un link que lo llevara a la presentación de power point utilizada esa noche.
