This is an important proposal, especially considering the new regulations imposed by the state board of education on field trips and international travel. As a public international option school the new regulations limit our ability to give students a truly global education if we are not allowed to provide opportunities to travel abroad, especially in the languages they are studying. Some form of this proposal would help us give the appropriate opportunities. However I would suggest if a school has three focus languages, (even if some of them are not critical need), there should be consideration of this as well. Also, in our case, we would like to encourage our students to take the year off between 10th and 11th grade to study abroad before they begin the rigors of the Diploma Program within the International Baccalaureate Program. The extra year of developmental growth, experience abroad and global perspective will enhance their ability and what they have to offer as they enter into this highly academic program. Perhaps in these cases the state (or district) would pay only partial scholarship, or base it upon need.
Thank you for pursuing this issue.
