Made possible also thanks to DC Immersion and its advocacy partners‘ work that led to the creation and programmatic funding of the Office of Multilingual Education within the Office of the State Superintendent for Education, OSSE’s Multilingual Learner Conference provided professional development to over 300 educators over 2 days, one of which was entirely dedicated to dual language programs.

On the planning committee together with DC Public Schools and Howard University, DC Immersion also presented on Building a Community of Advocates: How Educators Can Better Engage Families and Leaders To Support Students.

Congratulations to the team at OSSE for a much needed, top notch event.  

 

Dear Families, educators, and partners,

In 2020 we announced that the DC Language Immersion Project would close its doors due to lack of resources. However, before completely dissolving the organization, we recently asked a group of local and national educators if they - individually or collectively - would be interested in continuing the work of advocating for multilingual education in the District of Columbia. We are pleased to announce that a few individuals responded yes and volunteered to forge a plan to continue this vital work.

So, we are not closing our doors but we are entering a six-to-twelve-month period of dormancy as we determine the best path forward for the DC Immersion Project.  Thank you for your continued support and please stay tuned for updates.
