Burlington English Updates - By Tom Cytron-Hysom, Consultant

Thanks to hard work around the state, usage of Burlington English is climbing rapidly. At the end of January, 80% of available seats had been assigned to students! The next step will be for programs to ensure that assigned seats are being actively used by learners.

BE now has a mobile-friendly URL! The new site is:
Not all BE content is currently available on the new site, but more content for BE will be added soon. The Digital Readers, Prepare for CASAS, Using Your Computer, and Vocabulary Practice content are currently on the new mobile-friendly site and work seamlessly on most devices including phones, IPads and tablets, Chromebooks, etc. The new website allows for easy access with one log-in for administrators, teachers, and students.

BE has also launched a series of webinars that will be offered on a monthly basis. Topics include Lesson Planning, Career Pathways, Progress Reporting, Vocabulary Practice and Teacher Zone/Student Zone refresher. Keep on the lookout for e-invites. Please contact Margo Hernandez Rainwater if you have any questions: email Margo.

Burlington English continues to tweak our proxy report. When completed, the report will automatically calculate the additional 25% time reportable and round to the nearest quarter hour for easy proxy hours entry into SID. Check the DL website for updates soon!
