Seal of Biliteracy Regional Collaborative (Session 3)

The purpose of this collaborative working group is to discuss best practices, share resources and effectively plan for the implementation of the NYS Seal of Biliteracy in schools and districts across the region, with a focus on piloting the NYSED Modules.

World Language Regional Standards Committee

This committee's purpose is to support the NYSED Office of Bilingual Education and World Languages (OBEWL) in a revision process of the State's LOTE Standards, also referred to as World Languages. To ensure that the revised standards reflect the views of educators and stakeholders from throughout New York State, OBEWL will convene Regional Standards Review Committees* that will represent various parts of the State with a wide range of expertise including classroom teachers, building leaders, district level leaders, parents, students, higher education faculty, world language organization representatives and business and community members. *These meetings are open to committee members who have applied and have been selected by NYSED OBEWL.


The Office of Curriculum, Instruction and Professional Development (CIPD) works directly with component school districts to develop offerings that align to the NYS Department of Education’s Reform Agenda and district initiatives. In partnership with our districts, we support state and district reforms by contracting with nationally recognized authors and presenters to provide workshops. We then offer follow-up sessions and coaching to assist with implementation.
