Several CCSD59 students, parents, and educators came together at the board meeting on April 25 to update the board on the Dual Language Program. This program, originally at only one school and now at ten elementary schools and one junior high school, has grown significantly over the years. The presentation highlighted many of the excellent opportunities being in the dual language program provides students.
An additional highlight of the presentation was the release of the district’s new Dual Language Program video, which will be utilized to further educate various stakeholders on the program offerings in the district.
