West Michigan will gain another quality add.a.lingua immersion program this fall as Holland Christian School opens preschool and kindergarten Spanish immersion sections at Rose Park Elementary.
We’re excited to announce our newest partner in immersion education, Clarksville-Montgomery County School System. With a total enrollment over 32,000 students, this k-12 system is the 7th largest in the state of Tennessee. CMCSS will open two add.a.lingua early total one way Spanish immersion kindergarten sections at Barksdale Elementary in the fall of 2018.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the aalpa assessment products that students from grades K-8 produce. I’m looking forward to examining how students’ language progresses year by year in the immersion programs that incorporate the add.a.lingua framework. This is a unique opportunity since most educators only get to interact with students from a few grades at a time.
It was refreshing to know there are so many people out there who believe in the possibilities for ALL students and who aren’t trapped in the “this will never change” mindset. – Lilah Ambrosi
