Multilingual Education!

Posted December 13, 2022

At DPS, the many diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds that our students bring to the classroom enrich our schools. DPS believes every student’s home language and culture are assets that, combined with English language skills, help students achieve success in school and life.

The Multilingual Education (MLE) department works with schools to create programs in which all students graduate valuing cultural and linguistic diversity and are able to use their native languages and cultures as assets.

In alignment with DPS’ vision, our team’s vision is to ensure every Language Learner succeeds by providing the opportunity to achieve the knowledge and skills necessary to become contributing citizens in our diverse society. We believe that every single Language Learner can thrive — not by accident, but by design.

Please take 5 minutes to watch the videos below (available in English and Spanish). We look forward to welcoming our families to the school building when we return from Winter break for various community opportunities to strengthen school-to- family relationships to build educational successes for your children.

We also realize this is very short notice but wanted you to be aware of meeting tomorrow hosted by DPS.
