Building Multilingual Programs Through Multi-level Collaboration

Thursday February 8, 2024
9:30 - 11:00 AM

Did you know that immigration can revitalize rural communities in the U.S.? However, implementing multilingual programs in low-incidence areas has been a challenge, leaving many immigrants without the support they need to thrive. In this workshop, discover how a UVM doctoral student and district multilingual program coordinator collaborated with the state director of multilingual programs and a professor from the University of Vermont to develop a research-based multilingual program support rubric. This rubric guides districts and supervisory unions in evaluating and improving their multilingual programs, addressing a critical need expressed by practitioners in rural areas. Join us to be part of this innovative initiative, which includes forming a network of multilingual coordinators and providing district leaders with the tools they need to develop effective multilingual programs.
