Multilingual Pathways Department provides English Learners with a culturally and linguistically relevant education by engaging educators in quality professional development that empowers them to serve the educational needs of linguistically diverse student populations. In order to ensure the academic success of English Learners, we advocate for the development and maintenance of clearly defined biliteracy pathways that will raise student achievement across content areas and prepare them to fully participate in the 21st century economic, political, cultural, and intellectual life of our global society.
