During our annual board retreat in April 2019, the WAFLT board reviewed our constitution and bylaws and proposed several changes. The revisions received more than a 2/3 majority from the members and therefore have been enacted. Please click on the links below to view the revised constitution and bylaws document, WAFLT Code and Conduct, as well as the WAFLT officers’ duties.

Important World Language Advocacy report from
Lead With Languages. Thanks to Noah Geisel (ACTFL) for the image and blurb.
Please take 2 minutes to check out the executive summary of this report on Foreign Language Demand Among US Employers.

This information can be shared with districts, schools, students, and parents to raise awareness about the importance of bilingual education. Some ways of accomplishing this goal would be through immersion programs, starting language learning in kindergarten or early elementary school and making it a requirement that continues through high school and college.
