This Thursday, a statewide issue will be discussed in West Seattle – improving education for English-language learners, who comprise 10 percent of our state’s public school students. The announcement is from this week’s Denny International Middle School bulletin, but the announcement isn’t just for Denny families:
Washington State Family Bilingual Input Meeting
At Denny on Feb. 11: Come to share your experiences, ideas, and input about bilingual education, including ELL programs, with the BEAC, a committee that gives input to educational leaders in Olympia that support programs across the state.
Who: Parents and guardians of students in Bilingual and ELL programs
What: A two-hour meeting to discuss bilingual education
Why: Parents and guardians bring a very important perspective — leaders need to hear them to make good decisions
When: February 11, 6:00- 8:00 pm
Denny is at 2601 SW Kenyon. Read more about the BEAC and its work here.
