JCPS to Kick Off Celebrate Languages Week
Activities to highlight benefits of second language learners
March 23, 2017—Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) will host its first Celebrate Languages Week beginning March 27, highlighting the benefits of students who speak different languages learning alongside each other.
With more than 130 languages spoken by students in JCPS, an average school day can sound like a symphony of speech. That blend of voices is music to the ears of Eli Beardsley, the district’s English as a Second Language (ESL) coordinator.
