ALD4ALL Objectives

  1. Five ALD4ALL Project Objectives
  2. Identify effective bilingual multicultural education programs (BMEPs) serving CLD and EL students by June 30, 2014. This objective has been met by established timeline. For the third year, we are adding additional schools/partner organizations.
  3. Conduct effective practices inquiry among selected schools to determine how schools with BMEPs achieve positive results for CLD and EL students and share results statewide. This objective has been met by the end of second year. Dissemination of effective practices will continue beyond the project.
  4. From findings of the effective practices inquiry of schools/programs, develop and implement professional learning (PL) for educators to address the academic language learning needs of CLD and EL students by June 30, 2015, scaling up by June 30, 2016. This objective is on track to meet established timeline. In the second year of the project, we continued working with eight of the twelve schools initially selected for inquiry. For the third year, we are adding additional schools/partner organizations.
  5. Adopt (Common Core State Standards) CCSS-aligned Spanish language development and/or Spanish language arts standards and assessment. This objective has been partially met. In the second year, a taskforce was convened and made recommendations to the PED for moving forward. Work toward meeting this goal will continue in the third project year. Furthermore, addressing local needs to support indigenous language revitalization will be pursued.
  6. Adopt and implement New Mexico State Seal of Bilingualism/Biliteracy by June 30, 2016. This objective is on track to meet established timeline. The seal has been adopted as statute and rule will be implemented this school year—the students in the graduating class of 2016 are the first eligible recipients.
