The Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) Migrant/Bilingual Department has awarded the Heritage Language Program Grant to the Wenatchee School District in Wenatchee, WA, to develop a year-long remote-learning program for Heritage Language speakers of Romanian, Russian, and Spanish. The project will support the students in developing their language proficiency and literacy in their Heritage Language while also preparing a portfolio for the Global Competence Certificate in their Heritage Language (and English too, if they like) through the World Affairs Council of Seattle. Upon completion of the program, students will also have the opportunity to complete World Language Competency-Based Credit testing to earn high school credits in their language and potentially qualify for the Washington State Seal of Biliteracy. They may also qualify for the Global Seal of Biliteracy.
To support teachers and students during this process, we are hosting several information sessions to help students utilize the United Nations’ (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) within their Global Competency Portfolios. These sessions are for educators and students participating in the program as well as those who aren’t, but may be interested in learning more about SDGs. Register for "The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from the Student Perspective" session today!
