Did you know that Nevada has newly adopted state standards?  World language teachers from K-16 from around Nevada worked together with the Nevada Department of Education to develop the new state standards which replace those last written in 1997.  The new standards will be implemented in each district by the 2015-2016 school year. Proficiency is the guiding principle in the new standards.  Thank to you all that helped to create and provided feedback on these new standards!
