mission of Languages other than English in the Plano Independent
School District is to enable students to communicate effectively
in another language and to develop life-long appreciation for various
languages and cultures.
The study of
the foreign language is a progressive acquisition of communication,
cultures, connections, comparisons and communities. The Plano ISD
language program reflects this philosophy and incorporates the Texas
Essential Knowledge and Skills, the National Standards of the American
Council on the Teaching of Foreign Language and the objectives of
the College Board.
