2008 Elementary and Middle School County Maps

The MELL project has created the following county maps to help illustrate the distribution of world languages offered across the state in public elementary and middle schools. If you click on a county, you can view a PDF file of the profiles of the elementary and middle schools in that county that submitted surveys in 2008.
Note: Garfield and Pend Oreille counties did not have any elementary or middle schools reporting in 2008. They are represented as black in all the maps that follow.
