Chicago Public Schools Seal of Biliteracy Kick-off event

from NABE

NABE, the Illinois Association for Multilingual Multicultural Education and Multilingual Chicago were invited to be participants at the Chicago Public Schools Seal of Biliteracy Kick-off event at the University of Chicago. The event was well attended with many education and community groups, as well as individual parents, administrators, and teachers. Also, a number of political figures and Chicago Board of Education members were there to give their support to the CPS Office of Language and Cultural Education as it kicks off the first year of implementation of the Seal of Biliteracy in the Chicago. Two of the distinguished members were Senator Iris Martinez who introduced the Seal of Biliteracy bill in the Illinois Legislature and Alderman/Vice Mayor Ray Suarez, a motivating force in getting CPS to implement Seal of Biliteracy. NABE was represented by it's president Julio Cruz and by its affiliate, IAMME and members of Multilingual Chicago, initiators of the Seal of Biliteracy movement in Illinois.

NABE congratulates the staff of the Chicago Public Schools' Office of Language and Cultural Education for the work it has done in putting together this tremendously successful event. We specially want to thank Karen Mulattieri, Director of OLCE, and Fabiola Ginski, who organized and has lead the CPS Seal of Biliteracy Committee and as well as this event for the community. more
