A First: Pasadena School District To Offer Bilingual Classes

Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Feb 26, 2009

PASADENA, Calif. For the first time ever, the Pasadena Unified School District will offer bilingual classes in the fall, reports Sing Tao Daily. Chief Academic Officer Alice Petrossian said the district will start one Chinese and two Spanish classes for preschoolers. The school district also plans to start one Spanish class for first graders. Teachers will instruct in English for half the day and switch to the students native tongues for the rest of the day. Students will be asked to commit to a six-year bilingual program until grade five, Petrossian told Sing Tao Daily. Statistics show that students enrolled in bilingual classes generally perform better in school. If demand is great, Petrossian said the district will consider adding more classes.
