Beginning in the 2018-19 school year, all 5th-graders in Trumbull will receive 45 minutes of Spanish instruction per week to build their knowledge and skills in both the Spanish language and Hispanic cultures, a critical foundation for their future cultural competence and bilingualism. On August 23, 2018, the Curriculum Committee of the Board of Education endorsed the Draft for Pilot Curriculum Guide developed by Señora Slais and Señor Vazzano; the guide will be extended and revised during the 2018-19 school year for approval by the Committee, and forwarding to the full Board, prior to the 2019-20 school year.
