A message from the Executive Director
 
 
Getting Traction on Capitol Hill:
Telling Your Stories About Languages is Working!
 
 
 
Dear Colleagues,
 
As Spring warms the DC area, we’ve been busy following up on the fantastic work done by our 160 activists who participated in the 2019 Language Advocacy Days, as well as the American Classical League’s Advocacy Day in January. We’re also preparing for the 2019 Association of Language Companies’ Advocacy Day on May 1st. These repeated engagements on Capitol Hill, where you come to DC and tell your story, and exercise your First Amendment right to “petition the Government for a redress of grievances,” lead to real action on language issues in the Congress.
 
At the moment, we’re actively supporting several new bills:
 
In the educational space:
  • The World Languages Advancement and Readiness Act, H.R. 1094 in the House; we expect the Senate Bill to be introduced in short order. We’re up to 20 co-sponsors in the House, and we’ll be working with colleagues on the Hill over the next two months as this moves forward as part of the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act;
 
  • The Paul Simon Study Abroad Act, S. 1198, which was introduced on April 11th by Senator Durbin (D-IL). There are 4 co-sponsors, and this bipartisan bill will likely be part of the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act (HEA) later this summer;
 
  • The Reaching America’s English Learners Act, H.R. 1153 and S. 545. These identical Bills would amend Title II of the Higher Education Act to create a new program to prepare Dual Language Immersion and Bilingual Education teachers. Both have bipartisan support and will likely be part of the reauthorization of the HEA. We’re working with the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) on this effort;
 
  • The Biliteracy Education Seal and Teaching Act (BEST Act), which we expect will be introduced next month in the House. It will be very similar to last year’s version, which is linked above;
 
The Esther Martinez Native American Languages Programs Reauthorization Act, S. 256 and H. R. 912, which reauthorize and expand programs for Native American Languages.
 
In the industry space:
  • Along with the Coalition to Promote Independent Entrepreneurs, we are supporting the reintroduction of the Harmonization of Coverage Act (previously introduced as H.R.3825). This bill would harmonize the definition of the term “employee” for purposes of federal statutes and eliminate the ambiguity around worker misclassification liability that language services companies may face.
 
  • Language services are fundamentally knowledge-based professional services; it is thus imperative that federal agencies stop treating language services as commodities, like paper or plastics, under the aptly-named "Lowest Price Technically Available” (LPTA) model when procuring said services. Instead, agencies should be using the “Tradeoff Model,” which allows the contractor to prioritize non-cost factors and other performance indicators, such as past performance, risk aversion, reliability, and innovation. In order to take the temperature on language procurement in Washington, we are asking that the Government Accountability Office (GAO) issue a report on the utilization of LPTA vs Tradeoff models within federal agencies.
 
In addition, we’re happy to announce that the Senate recently passed a resolution (S.Res.100) recognizing the heritage, culture, and contributions of American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian women in the United States, and that the House entered a statement of support for the Classics into the Congressional Record.
 
The summer promises to be a busy time for languages in DC! Stay tuned! And as always, let us know what’s going on in your world, and always feel free to ask us for advice and help.
 
With Best Wishes,
 
Dr. Bill Rivers
Executive Director

Four Incredible Locations, Four Not to Miss Opportunities!

Our 7th Annual OWL Summer Bootcamp is a time to make invaluable connections with other educators across the country, have fun and grow in your practice! We will spend an entire week together sharing our successes and challenges, looking at student work, developing assessment rubrics, conquering ropes course activities together (that can later be used in class!) and having a blast while focusing on student learning and growth.

 

Southwest Bootcamp 

June 9- June 14, 2019

Overlooking Galveston Bay, the Kemah Boardwalk features themed restaurants, retail shops, and amusements for the whole family.This 35-acre carnival-like atmosphere has a 36-foot carousel, a 65-foot Ferris wheel and rides like the Aviator and the Boardwalk Tower. Don't miss the arcade and Midway games. And for thrill seekers, there's the Boardwalk Beast, an adrenaline rush of a boat ride that takes passengers four miles into Galveston Bay at speeds up to 40 mph. 

Just 20 miles from downtown Houston, The Kemah Boardwalk is a great coastal getaway, and home to our Southwest Bootcamp! Don't miss it!
Southwest Bootcamp 2019

West Coast Bootcamp 2018

June 23- 28, 2019

Tacoma + Pierce County is a place for people unafraid to trek through the woods of Mount Rainier in the rain, fearless of breaking a sweat in the heat of the hot shop while blowing glass and resiliently tilling the soil that grows some of the world's best rhubarb.

From the Puget Sound waters to Mount Rainier and everything in between Pierce County communities are unique. Check out rhubarb pie in Sumner or antiques in Puyallup. Maritime can be found in Gig Harbor, while majestic gardens are in Lakewood. Discover history in Fife or connect with nature at Mount Rainier. With each just a car-ride away from Tacoma's glass art scene, it's easy to go out and explore.

West Coast Bootcamp 2019

Midwest Bootcamp 

July 28- August 2, 2019

It's hard to know what to gawk at first. High-flying architecture is everywhere, from the stratospheric, glass-floored Willis Tower to Frank Gehry's swooping silver Pritzker Pavilion to Frank Lloyd Wright's stained-glass Robie House. Whimsical public art studs the streets; you might be walking along and wham, there's an abstract Picasso statue that's not only cool to look at, but you're allowed to go right up and climb on it. For art museums, take your pick: impressionist masterpieces at the massive Art Institute, psychedelic paintings at the mid-sized Museum of Mexican Art or outsider drawings at the small Intuit gallery.
 

Steely skyscrapers, top chefs, rocking festivals – the Windy City will blow you away with its low-key cultured awesomeness.

Midwest Bootcamp 2019

East Coast Bootcamp 

August 4 - August 9, 2019

Take a walk through history at the Fire island Lighthouse with a Lighthouse Keeper. Visit the Keeper’s Quarters, historic boathouse and Fresnel Lens Building from a Keeper’s perspective. Tower tours reduced for those on the walk.

If there’s a single truth about Long Island, it’s that one adventure quickly leads to another. This great stretch of sand and surf, history and culture, culinary excellence and local farm stands is New York’s playground. You’ll find exceptional experiences here and you won’t always expect what you find. Long Island likes to surprise you in the best possible ways.
