Across the nation, demand for dual-language education has emerged as a popular option as schools seek out ways to help both English-language learners and native English-speaking students become bilingual and biliterate. But even in the best of times, maintaining and fine-tuning those programs can be a challenge, whether the programs are long-standing or just getting off the ground. Amid a global pandemic, school districts may even need extra support. During this webinar, nationally recognized dual language education experts will walk participants through tips on how to provide crucial professional development opportunities for teachers and principals, forge deep connections with families and community organizations, and secure the tools necessary to keep their programs intact and thriving.
