LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - The University of Louisiana at Lafayette hopes to start a summer program for people who want to teach elementary French immersion classes.

It would grant a master’s degree in elementary education with a concentration in elementary French immersion.

The Advertiser reports (https://bit.ly/2kZM07W ) that the proposal goes before a university system Board of Supervisors committee Thursday. It would need approval by the system, the Board of Regents and the Louisiana Department of Education.

A Lafayette Parish school official says 54 immigrants in Louisiana on visas teach French immersion classes in the parish.

Louisiana-Lafayette’s master of arts in teaching program is designed for people without any teaching certification. It currently offers two concentrations in special education for students with mild to moderate disability: One for grades 1-5, and one for grades 6-12.
