Investing in Multi-lingual learners

Investing in Multilingual Learners art

Despite federal orders to do so, PPSD has failed to support and invest in multilingual learners (MLL) for far too long. Providence must make MLL students a priority, beginning with these steps:

  1. Ensuring smaller MLL class sizes.
  2. Supporting educators in creating a district-supported, accessible pathway for additional MLL licensure. 
  3. Hiring and retaining significantly more MLL educators. 
  4. Providing consistent, embedded, high-quality MLL professional development.
