A consortium of educators from King and Pierce County led by Dr. Belinda Yun-Ying Louie, professor of education at the University of Washington (UW) Tacoma, received a $2 million, 5-year grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of English Language Acquisition.

The grant will fund a new project called Communities of Practice for Teaching English Language Learners (TELL).
