    Mission Statement: The Bilingual Education Department offers research-based programs and exemplary instruction for English learners in the Framingham Public Schools. FPS has a diverse student population and currently services students from over 70 countries, including Brazil, China, Haiti, India, Pakistan, Portugal, Russia, Vietnam and several Spanish-speaking countries. The district is committed to offering the highest quality of educational services to all students, and administers ELE programs with the goal of developing English language proficiency and achieving state content-area standards, while simultaneously valuing students' native languages and cultural backgrounds.

    Our Guiding Principles:
    1. Effective programs have equitable access and are based on both standards and current research.
    2. Effective instruction meets the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse students.
    3. Effective on-going family involvement is integral to student success.
    4. Effective professional development improves teaching through the integration of language and content.
