    The United Impartial Faculty District was named Wednesday as one in all three finalists for the 2021-22 District of the 12 months by the Texas Affiliation for Bilingual Schooling. 

    The TABE selects nominees based mostly on the expansion and achievements of their emergent bilingual college students. Maria Arámbula-Ruiz, the UISD Director of Bilingual/ESL/Twin and Overseas Languages, and her workers of bilingual coordinators are accountable for placing the scholars able to succeed and helped obtain the distinction. 

    UISD was chosen as a finalist amongst 1000’s of Texas campuses that are partnered with Summit K12. The finalists shall be acknowledged this week on the TABE convention which is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary as it is going to be held Oct. 13-16 in Houston. 

    “Because the director of the bilingual program at United, I’m grateful for the help of our superintendent, Mr. David Gonzalez, our UISD board, and the dedication from the bilingual workers, faculty administration and lecturers,” Arámbula-Ruiz stated. “It’s due to their work that this recognition has been bestowed upon our district. The coordination and partnership with Summit K12 has ready our bilingual college students to efficiently meet the state expectations on the Texas English Language Proficiency Evaluation System regardless of the challenges that they’ve confronted in recent times. They’re the rationale that the district is being thought of for this honor on the TABE convention.”
