What is a cooperative agreement?

The North Dade Center for Modern Languages offers two components in the Spanish program, one is the intensive language and the other is the Cooperative Education Program with the Spanish government. In the Spanish intensive component, all students will take 1-1/2 hours of Spanish with or without prior knowledge of the language.

CML also offers a dual language curriculum in Spanish and English that exposes our young scholars to the best of the French and American educational systems. Our scholars in the Cooperative Education Program (3-5) study Spanish two hours daily, of which a portion of their instruction is devoted to curriculum objectives in math, science, and social studies from Spain. The course work taken by these students will be accredited under the guidelines of State of Florida, M-DCPS, and the country of Spain. Scholars participating in this program must either speak Spanish as a home language, or function at a similar level.
