The NYS Statewide Language Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network (RBE-RN)

The NYS Statewide Language RBE-RN is funded by the New York State Education Department Office of Bilingual Education and World Languages to provide support for the education of limited English proficient/English language learners (LEP/ELLs), and students of languages other than English. Districts and schools statewide are offered technical assistance, professional development and resource materials, including information that strengthens the teaching and learning of students of English as a new language, and students of languages other than English.

As part of the NYS Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network, the focus of the Language RBE-RN is to promote high academic achievement for LEP/ELLs from various languages and cultural backgrounds. In order to support the commitment of the New York State Education Department to higher standards for all students through the Commissioner’s Regulations and the Regents Reform Agenda, the Language RBE-RN aims to develop and strengthen the skills, knowledge, and competencies of educators, parents, and local communities.
