On Monday, April 8th, Deputy Commissioner Angelica Infante-Green provided an overview of the Languages Other Than English (LOTE) Standards revision process to the New York State Board of Regents. Recognizing the need to continually improve the Learning Standards that guide education in New York State, the Office of Bilingual Education and World Languages (OBEWL) will conduct a revision process of the State’s LOTE Standards, also referred to as World Languages. To ensure that the revised standards for World Languages reflect the views of educators and stakeholders from throughout New York State, OBEWL will convene Regional Standards Review Committees. These committees will represent various parts of the State with a wide range of expertise including classroom teachers, building leaders, district level leaders, parents, students, higher education faculty, world language organization representatives and business and community members.
