BVSD’s CLDE Department is driven by the following core beliefs:

  • Equity serves as the foundation for our work.
  • Partnerships and trust between educators and families are critical to student success.
  • It is critical for educators to understand and honor the language acquisition process and implement best instructional practices to ensure student success.
  • All students bring a wealth of linguistic and cultural experiences that contribute to and support their learning in BVSD.
  • Educators must build upon students’ assets to ensure their educational success.  
  • We believe all educators are teachers of language and impact the experience and success of emerging bilingual students.
  • All students, educators, and families benefit from being part of a diverse learning community.
