This page has a variety of resources to assist parents of multilingual students as you work with your student to acquire proficiency and fluency in the English language.
If you have any questions, please reach out to your Homeschool Teacher (HST) or Lisa Mesa, Director of School Support and English Language Development, at email@example.com. We are always here for you and happy to help.
Biliteracy Recognition Program
This is a new program for students in grades TK - 8 who want to begin learning a world language in addition to English. This is a voluntary program that aims to honor and affirm students' home languages and culture and to encourage a study of languages toward becoming multilingual. Successful completion of this program as a middle schooler will prepare the student for working toward the State Seal of Biliteracy, as a high schooler (more information below).
There are three pathway options depending on the grade, interest, and purpose of the student. Please see the informational handouts below. If you are interested in registering for this program, please let your HST know or contact Lisa Mesa, lisa.mesa@missionvistaacademy.
State Seal of Biliteracy
The State Seal of Biliteracy is an award given to graduating seniors who have proven fluency in one or more languages, in addition to English. It is marked by a gold seal on the student’s high school diploma. For more information, contact Lisa Mesa or your high school counselor and also see the State Seal of Biliteracy Parent Flyer.
The Multilingual Learners Advisory Committee (MLAC)’s purpose is to advise and provide input on issues pertaining to English Learners (ELs) and the school’s formal plans. It is also a great way to foster a better involvement so that working together, parents and staff can increase the academic achievement of our EL population.
For questions about the MLAC, please contact Lisa Mesa, Director of School Support and English Language Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
