Board of Education Debates Future of Dual Language Program

KSCB News - April 7, 2010 12:00 am

Laura Cano put on a presentation for the USD 480 Board of Education on Monday night. Cano mentioned that by cutting the Dual Language Program that the district could more effectively help more students by making Dual Language teachers ESL teachers. Several board members voiced their displeasure with the idea, but it was just an informational item and won’t be up for a vote until the next meeting.

After the discussion the board approved the consent agenda which includes the waiver of building rental fee, and for an overnight trip. The board also approved the purchase of talk and listening kits and to amend a board policy. The board then approved the adoption of a new board policy that evaluates coaches and sponsors

The board will next meet on Monday, April 26.
