We are pleased to announce that Eastern Suffolk BOCES will administer the LONG ISLAND REGIONAL BILINGUAL EDUCATION RESOURCE NETWORK (L.I. RBE-RN) for another year, until June 30, 2015. The purpose of the L.I. RBE-RN (formerly known as BETAC) is to support districts and schools in promoting equity and excellence in the education of English Language Learners (ELLs) by providing high quality technical assistance, on-site consultation, and professional development.
The Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network (RBE-RN) is funded through a contract from the New York State Education Department, Office of Bilingual Education and Foreign Language Studies, which allows the RBE-RN to provide services at no charge to school districts.
The L.I. RBE-RN catchment area now includes both Nassau and Suffolk Counties, and it serves all125 public school districts on Long Island. To ensure greater accessibility to educators in both counties, we have established a Nassau Satellite Office that operates out of the Nassau BOCES site at its Lupinskie Center in Westbury. The main office of the L.I. RBE-RN remains located at the Eastern Suffolk BOCES site at its Sherwood Instructional Support Center in Holbrook.
We look forward to serving you in our mutual endeavor to improve and enhance programs and instruction for ELLs across Long Island.
