World Language Leadership Team Members

The World Language Leadership Team is working with the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and the Office of Bilingual Education and World Languages (OBEWL) to plan and implement the World Language Standards Revision Process.  Membership on this team comes from a variety of statewide organizations, various school districts and the Regional Bilingual Education Resource Networks (RBERN).  The end product of this team will be a set of recommended revised standards for World Languages to be submitted to the Board of Regents for consideration and adoption in the summer of 2020.
