Mr. D'Angelo has announced that IS 228 received a $25K grant from the DOE - Office Of English Language Learners (OELLs) for a dual language program. These funds will be used for instructional materials and staff development for the upcoming Hebrew Dual Language Program @ IS 228. The program will be implemented September 2015. This will be the first Hebrew Middle School Dual Language Program in NYC. Over the past several years our school has started three other Dual Language Programs ( Russian, Mandarin & Spanish).
