Bilingual Education ~ Lawrence Public Schools

Lawrence offers a fully implemented Bilingual Program k-12. Over the last 10 years, Lawrence has been identified as one of the largest and fastest growing Hispanic communities on Long Island. In addition to a wide range of academic supports, the Bilingual Program provides another means to address this challenges faced by English Language Learners.   With a shift from the traditional ESL Program to the new Bilingual Program,  five new Bilingual Teachers were hired and two ESL Teachers were re-assigned to Bilingual Classes. We are happy to report that our Bilingual Program has been received with overwhelming community support.
