Global California 2030 from the California Department of Education (CDE), sets direction for Local Education Associations (LEAs) to develop dual language programs for families, but what does it really take? How do you create a program that highlights additive bilingualism for all students?

This session will highlight how Sunnyvale’s Two-Way Dual Language Spanish Program, Juntos, is elevating the status of our Spanish speaking or Heritage Spanish-speaking Latino families with overall language development with a social-emotional-cultural lens. It will outline the role of the school board as trustees of the school district and the partnership and communication between the school board and central office to ensure the growth and development of this unique program from 2015 to present day.

Sunnyvale School District’s School Board employs the CSBA, California School Board Association’s, responsibilities of setting direction and providing support to create the environment for innovation with the Juntos, Two-Way Dual Language Spanish Program.
