Dear AST Families and Friends,
Language Policy Update
Increased attention to the school language policy has resulted in a total of 9 students being sent to the office for using a language other than English in an instructional setting. One student was reported more than once.
The school policy (taken from Parent Student Handbook page 10) is: English is the language of instruction. Use of other languages in class is only with permission of the teacher and should be focused on improving understanding of the lesson.
