The Annual Fund is John Stanford International School's most important fundraiser, directly supporting our school's mission to create culturally diverse, life-long learners who will become better global citizens. The Annual Fund is a direct fundraising appeal to JSIS families, primarily for the purpose of funding Instructional Assistants (IAs) interns in your child's immersion classroom
The Seattle Public School district does not fund language immersion IA and intern positions
. JSIS relies solely upon the generosity of families to fund these critical positions.
A special Thank You to JSIS parents Jennifer Wing & Mark Mirabile for producing this video!
Every student benefits from Immersion IAs and interns!
The presence of IAs and interns in every immersion classroom strengthens the academic support for your student by:
- lowering the student-to-teacher to 13:1
- creating "teaching teams" that provide crucial language support to your child
- enabling one-on-one tutoring in math and world language
