This report details plans for future action by the Detroit Public Schools for bilingual education. It begins with an historical overview of national and local bilingual education in the last several years. The next section consists of a statement of goals, both for the program and the students involved. The two following sections address the areas of identification, assessment, and placement of non-English or limited English speaking children in the school system. Six additional sections describe program model options available for implementation in schools, staffing, parent and community involvement, administration and governance of bilingual programs, student and program evaluations, and special education. The final three sections discuss bilingual/multicultural education financing, Federal and State funding, and monitoring of program implementation. A glossary of terms is included. (Author/MK)
