After a leadership change in their district, IDRA Education CAFE members in south Texas were concerned that the district might phase out its K-12 bilingual-biliterate program. Some school board members did not appear to understand the program. Family members came together to meet with the school board urging that the program be made permanent. After hearing families’ testimonies, the school board unanimously passed a policy statement for its K-12 biliteracy program to ensure its stability. Students in the bilingual-biliterate program receive the state’s biliteracy seal on their diploma.
