The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) hosted their 2019 annual convention and world languages expo at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Pre-convention workshops began Thursday, November 21, and the schedule programs ran through Sunday, November 24.

During the convention, DC Immersion had a booth in the exhibitor’s hall and presented on the recently published report, Demographics and Equity of Dual Language Immersion Programs in Washington, D.C..

We were glad to share with over 7000 educators attending the conference our resources to increase access to multilingual education:

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.
