Bilingual & Migrant Education
About Bilingual & Migrant Education
The district provides assistance for students with limited English proficiency. We follow the State Transitional Bilingual program guidelines and receive supplementary funds based on eligible student counts. Program goals include:
- Teaching English as a second language;
- Supporting academic achievement in classes; and
- Communicating with parents in a language they can understand.
Mount Baker Language Line
In keeping with our goal to facilitate communication between parents and school for all of our families, Mount Baker School District has created a Spanish/Russian Phone Line and Email Address. If you prefer to speak in Spanish or Russian and have any questions or comments for a school staff member (teacher, principal, office staff, etc.), please call the following number: (360) 383-2065 or send an email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. There, you will be able to record/write your message in your preferred language, which will then be forwarded to a school staff member who speaks that language. If needed, you will receive a response within one business day.
IMPORTANT: In your messages, please include your name, your child's name, and the school your child attends. This will help us ensure your message gets to the right person. Thank you!
