A California school district has expanded its Spanish-language program this year in an effort to graduate more bilingual and biliterate students. The Laguna Beach school district will offer after-school instruction to students in first through third grade and provide Spanish classes during the day for fourth- and fifth-graders. The district has also hired a Spanish teacher to coordinate curriculum with other teachers, ending a practice of contracting out its Spanish curriculum.
