Office of Education granted $500,000
April 17, 2014, 05:00 AM

The San Mateo County Office of Education has been granted $500,000 to empower and cultivate parents from low-income backgrounds from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s $13.7 million family engagement grant competition.

The grant for San Mateo County is titled the Early Childhood Language Development Institute and is designed to narrow the readiness gap of preschool dual language learners through trainings, coaching and technical assistance for teachers, administrators and families. The services are based on three overarching principles that are anchored in best practices: establishing authentic family-teacher partnerships; preserving children’s home languages and cultures; and supporting children’s second language acquisition in a culturally responsive learning environment. These principles are based on the core belief that a child’s home language and culture are closely tied to his or her identity and self-esteem.

Don't like it
I guess the Cold War is over
Does this mean Cuban cigars will be cheaper now?
