The Board shall notify districts of the course’s availability, and may expand the program to include more course offerings subject to demand and available resources. The Act also funds incentives to 15 qualifying schools for offering pilot programs in Chinese, Spanish, French, and Navajo, as well as a 50-50 English-foreign language instructional model. This policy, after amendments, was approved unanimously.
