New Bilingual Common Core Initiative in New York--Extension of Public Review to February 1st, 2013

Beginning in Spring 2012, NYSED launched the Bilingual Common Core Initiative to develop new English as a Second Language and Native Language Arts Standards aligned to the Common Core. As a result of this process, NYSED is developing New Language Arts Progressions (NLAP) and Home Language Arts Progressions (HLAP) for every NYS Common Core Learning Standard in every grade. NYSED has posted documents that explain the Department's approach and provide samples of the work underway here: http://www.engageny.org/resource/new-york-state-bilingual-common-core-initiative

The Department has placed the samples online for public review and comment. The public review period ends February 1st, 2013. Public comment may be provided through taking the survey online here: https://www.research.net/s/bilingualcommoncoreprogressions or by sending comments to BCCPROG at MAIL dot NYSED dot GOV.
