Bilingual Education

Our mission is to foster an educational system that embraces refugee, immigrant, and language minority students. We seek to provide services and a learning environment where students can succeed, participate fully at all levels, and achieve their full potential.

For the district, we provide a centralized location for data, assessment, staffing, resources and services to bilingual students, families, and LSD staff.
