Dear Educators and Parents,

During this challenging time when schools are closed, the NYS Statewide Language RBERN will continue to operate remotely even while New York University is closed. We are transitioning to remote school support and professional opportunities via distance learning.  In addition to our robust list of guides, instructional materials and resources for ELLs, we have added a list of Online Resources.  This list of online resources will be continuously updated and dated so that you can easily see when new materials have been added.

In the interim, we wish everyone continued good health and success.  For information or assistance, please feel free to contact us at nyslanguagerbern@gmail.com, or your resource specialists via email.

Sincerely,

Ron Woo, Executive Director

The NYS Statewide Language RBE-RN is funded by the New York State Education Department Office of Bilingual Education and World Languages to provide support for the education of limited English proficient/English language learners (LEP/ELLs), and students of languages other than English. Districts and schools statewide are offered technical assistance, professional development and resource materials, including information that strengthens the teaching and learning of students of English as a new language, and students of languages other than English.

As part of the NYS Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network, the focus of the Language RBE-RN is to promote high academic achievement for LEP/ELLs from various languages and cultural backgrounds. In order to support the commitment of the New York State Education Department to higher standards for all students through the Commissioner’s Regulations and the Regents Reform Agenda, the Language RBE-RN aims to develop and strengthen the skills, knowledge, and competencies of educators, parents, and local communities.
