Emergent Bilingual Support


SB560 Emergent Bilingual Strategic Plan

Given the continued increase of emergent bilingual students in classrooms across Texas, this strategic plan is timely in providing a blueprint for support needed to bring intentionality and focus to such a large, specialized population impacted in Texas schools. Our goal for Texas is to ensure that schools and staff are properly equipped to support to our EB students on an individualized basis, because all students deserve access to the same programs and instruction that could lead to academic success.
