The Juneau School District Board of Education approved a motion to rejuvenate its world language curriculum by adding instructional materials for several languages that were being taught with obsolete materials.
The district’s current world languages curriculum, including books, materials and strategies, has not been reviewed since 1992.
Spanish, French, Russian and Tlingit materials would be updated, at a cost of $50,000, to all secondary schools.
“I think that this is worthy of adoption,” said Boardmember Barbara Thurston.
The motion passed unanimously.
