2009 High School County Maps

In keeping with the theme of mapping and enhancing language learning, the MELL project has created the following county maps to help illustrate the distribution of world languages offered across the state. If you click on a county, you can view a PDF file of the profiles of the high schools in that county that submitted surveys in 2009.

About the MELL County Data

The 2009 High School County Maps reflect data submitted by high schools on the 2009 MELL Survey. Note that some schools on the master list of high schools obtained from OSPI did not respond to email or phone requests to complete the survey. Schools that could not be reached were excluded from the dataset (hence 100% of high schools on our list submitted the survey).
