On July 28, 2016, the First 5 California commission approved up to $20 million for five years (Fiscal Years 201617 through 202021) to fund the Dual Language Learner Pilot. The next step is to develop the Request for Proposals for both the pilot sites and the external evaluation. The plan is to launch the Pilot early next year. For more information about the funding approval for the Pilot, please see the July 28, 2016 Agenda Item.
