Current Partnerships

The original DLI programs adopting a summer STARTALK component include Portland Public Schools and several programs in Utah. These have been joined by current STARTALK-DLI Partnerships funded in the current project:

NJ– Chinese (West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District)
UT – Portuguese (University of Utah) UT – Chinese (Washington County School District)
GA – Korean (Gwinnett County School District)
MA – Portuguese (Brockton School District)
UT – Russian, Chinese, Portuguese (Tooele School District)
ID – Chinese (Jefferson County School District)

The range of designs of these programs illustrates the possibilities of the Partnerships. As indicated in this chart, existing Partnerships are divided into two groups focused on students entering DLI (“jumpstart programs”) or continuing from elementary to middle schools (“onward programs”). The institution receiving the grant and the languages targeted are also indicated.
