ABIRC Chair, Blong Xiong, sits on Fresno Unified’s EL Master Plan Committee as a community member. As part of the overall recommendation for the EL Plan, Hmong language is be added as a foreign language and to provide initial funding to start the program. FUSD Trustee voted to adopt the over all EL Plan with the recommended budget. We want to thank our Trustees for their vote, equally important, are the community members and organizations that help to push this item for the Hmong community. We believe that having Hmong as foreign language will benefit not only Hmong students but all students.
