Steamboat Conversations-Bilingual & Newcomer Programs

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

Over the past few years, the Steamboat Springs School District has seen an increase in students enrolling who are both new to the country and new to English. The program allows students to build a foundation in English while learning the same content as their peers. The goal is to get students to fluency, after which they are provided continued monitoring and support. While most of the students are from Mexico, the program also serves students from Central and South America as well as West Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The program also includes classes on culture — helping the students understand their new environment — both the culture of the U.S. and the Yampa Valley.
