Bilingual Education and World Languages Website
Office of Bilingual Education and World Languages (OBEWL)
Our mission is to ensure that all New York State English Language Learners (ELLs) attain the highest level of academic success and that all Multilingual Learners (MLs) – which include ELLs, Former/Ever ELLs, World Languages students, and heritage speakers of World Languages – achieve the highest level of language proficiency in English and in one or more other languages.
The Bilingual Education website has current information on regulations, programs and funding for districts.
The World Languages website has resources that promote and support the teaching and learning of one or more languages and cultures, in addition to the English language.
