About Mid-West RBERN

Mid-West Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network (RBERN)

Our Goal
The Mid-West Regional Bilingual Resource Network is part of the NYS Education Department's network of support for schools.  The goal of RBERN is to assist districts and schools in creating an educational environment for English Language Learners (ELLs) which engages everyone in meaningful teaching and learning.
RBE-RN works in partnership with the district office, school building administration, building staff, and other support networks to help schools close the gap in ELLs academic performance.  RBERN expertise lies in research-based instruction and assessment of ELLs and the alignment of those practices with the Common Core Learning Standards.
