As IUSD implements new content area standards and educational initiatives, the Language Development Program staff and teachers continue to design, augment, and support the many programs and services we provide to a very diverse student population and community at-large. We have developed integrated instructional programs for both students and parents that support the whole child, focusing on the language, cognitive, and social-emotional needs of our second language learners and immigrant students. We recognize and appreciate the diverse assets that all students and their families bring to IUSD, and hope to further our leadership in developing a culturally aware and culturally competent district.
