Subject: Discussion of Spanish Language Arts
Vision 2022:
Learning Support Systems
Redesign the English Learner Program delivery model to better meet the needs of the growing English Learner population.
Background: The Illinois State Board of Education has new rules and regulations for school districts regarding the use of Spanish Language Arts Standards. Districts with bilingual Spanish programs are required to instruct students using the Spanish Language Arts standards with the goals of acquisition of listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills (biliteracy) and understanding and appreciation of cultures. This fall, staff convened a Spanish Language Arts Exploratory Committee to evaluate Spanish Language Arts instructional models and provide recommendations.
