The Department of Education is proposing new priorities, requirements, and definitions in the National Professional Development (NPD) program that would grow our numbers of bilingual and multilingual educators to expand availability of bilingual programs for all students and help ensure that English Learners have access to well-prepared educators, and emphasize and elevate supports for students from low-income backgrounds.
OELA is asking for comments regarding the proposed priorities, requirements, and definitions. To ensure that your comments have maximum effect in developing the final priorities, requirements, and definitions, we urge you to identify clearly the specific proposed priorities, requirements, and definitions that each comment addresses.
