Here's my first brainstorm solution:
(1) BOE votes to implement a Language Immersion (LI) program at Ohlone in the fall of 2008 or 2009 (commitment to a date for implementation/deadline is important in order not to drag this thing out interminably)
(2) BOE structures a process of public comment/task force to get community involved in structuring the LI program with major stakeholders at the table (e.g. include PACE leaders, FLES supporters, etc.)
(3) Consideration of other LI models is explored (perhaps the program could include 2 or 3 foreign languages, BOE could decide which foreign languages are included in the program thru a district survey)
(4) International Baccalaureate curriculum is explored as a possible model for inspiration.
