The Las Cruces Public Schools has a special department: Bilingual Education, Translation and Interpretation, and Community Outreach. The goal of the department is to remove any barriers for students who are English learners mastering academic content and a new language at the same time. They work with students and their families together to help them receive equitable access to social support, enrichment opportunities, and services for growth of the entire family. Outreach Coordinator Blanca Ontiveros and Karina Herrera will be Nan Rubin’s guests in the studio to share information about this program critical to LCPS students who speak more than one dozen languages.
