  • Message from the Director of Bilingual/ESL and World Languages Education/Mensaje del Director de Educación Bilingüe/Ingles Como Segundo Idioma e Idiomas del mundo.

    The past academic year was extremely challenging for parents, educators, and specifically for our students. As we start this school year, we feel renewed on the possibilities that it offers, as we return to in-person teaching and learning. We, as part of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, are adopting and implementing new curricular initiatives, such as Readers Workshop form Columbia University Teachers College, Benchmark Phonics/Taller de fonética in grades K-2, Achieve 3000 in grades 5-12, plus the regular apps that we have used for virtual learning.
