Some of you may or may not know that I sit on a board for a dual language school called, Austin Community School, hence my e-mail to all of you 🙂 We are in the process of being interviewed by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), which is one of the many steps charters have to take in order to be “approved.” Please join us in advocating for dual language education in Austin, Texas by adding your name to the link below.
As individuals who work, teach and live with multiple languages and know the importance of multilingualism, I thought you would be interested in this. We need a show of support for Austin Community School and dual language programs in Austin. Please add your name to a list of community supporters here:
Like I mentioned earlier we’re meeting with TEA on September 9th to prove that there is a need for a charter like Austin Community School. Keep in mind, even if you love your kids’ school, have plans to send them to a different school, live far away, or don’t have kids, your /support for the idea/ of Austin Community School is absolutely important. It will only take a minute to add your name. And *please pass this along* to anyone else,(students, teachers, colleagues) who may be interested.
Thank you for your help! (http://www.austincommunityschool.org/)
IF you have any questions about ACS or dual language education PLEASE don’t hesitate to contact me.
