Studies. This center functions as the administrative unit for

federal funds that support the following bilingual activities:

  • BCLAD Short Term Training. Classes in bilingual methodologies

    and the history and culture of language minority children are

    provided for classroom teachers preparing for the Bilingual Certificate

    of Competence exam. Classes are offered on campus and at school

    sites in Los Angeles County.

  • Distribution of Bilingual Materials. Under the title

    of the Evaluation, Dissemination, and Assessment Center, curriculum

    materials and texts are produced and distributed for use in bilingual

    programs at every level from kindergarten to university.

  • Educational Personnel Training Program. Stipends are

    provided for nearly one hundred bilingual students to pursue course

    work leading to the doctorate in Special Education.
