The Principal Investigator (PI) of the NYSIEB project is Professor Ricardo Otheguy. The Co-PIs are Professors Ofelia García and Professor Kate Menken. The major goals of this initiative are (1) to develop the intellectual and leadership capacities of principals of schools that serve large numbers of emergent bilinguals in New York State, (2) to document successful practices for emergent bilinguals occurring state-wide, (3) to coordinate the State effort in developing Bilingual Common Core Standards that align the current NLA and ESL standards with the Common Core standards.
