Second Language Policy

Second Language Policy

Classroom instruction and discussion should be in English, unless translation is needed or other language is part of the learning experience. Students may speak other languages appropriately and respectfully, outside of the classroom.  A child’s second language will be used extensively in First Additional Language (FAL) and related activities, however, a child’s second language should not be used if the purpose is to exclude others from the conversation or to hide the meaning of their conversation.
