A $2.2 million grant to Washington State University will help put more than 50 bilingual teachers in classrooms in Vancouver and the Tri-Cities.The five-year grant from the Department of Education will allow WSU to provide full scholarships to at least 52 paraprofessionals — teachers’ aides who already are working in schools with English learners — to get bachelor’s degrees in education with English language learning endorsements.Washington State University Vancouver’s own Gisela Ernst-Slavit, an English learning professor with the College of Education, will lead the charge with a team of researchers from the WSU Pullman and Tri-Cities campuses. The campuses also will analyze the success of the program for the Department of Education, looking at how successful the new teachers are and how they’re able to help students succeed in school.The funding will help support paraprofessionals who already may be “outstanding educators,” but who have not received their degrees and teaching endorsements, Ernst-Slavit said.“With a grant like this, we can build on what they have,” Ernst-Slavit said.The grant will allow WSU to collaborate directly with school districts, including Evergreen Public Schools in Vancouver, to find paraprofessionals for the program.Washington faces a teacher shortage statewide, and in turn a severe shortage of English learning teachers, according to a WSU news release. None of the state’s 295 school districts had their English learning students meet reading or math standards during the 2013-2014 school year, according to a university news release.While Washington’s diverse student population continues to grow, she said, there’s often a cultural gap between teachers and the children they teach, she said.
Port of Vancouver Commissioner Jerry Oliver is tired of rehashing the port’s Vancouver Energy lease when it comes up for automatic renewal every three months.The rail-to-marine oil transfer terminal is working its way through the state’s evaluation process for large energy projects and Oliver wants to allow that process to run its course. That’s why he proposed during Tuesday’s port meeting that the commissioners extend the lease until Jan. 1, 2021.His motion failed 2-1 as Commissioners Brian Wolfe and Eric LaBrant voted against it but did not comment on the vote.“I’m sick and tired of every 90 days having to sit there and listen to the same lament from the proponents and opponents,” he said after the meeting. “Let’s stop talking about it. At this point there’s nothing we can do to influence (Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council) and the governor, other than writing them letters.” The $210 million oil terminal is currently being reviewed by the evaluation council. When they are finished they will give Gov. Jay Inslee a recommendation that it either should or shouldn’t be built. He will have 60 days to make a decision.
SPOKANE — Work to demolish a former nuclear weapons production factory in Washington may resume in September, about six months after it was halted when workers were exposed to radioactive particles, the U.S. Department of Energy said Thursday.The agency will implement extra safety measures for workers demolishing the Plutonium Finishing Plant on the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, which is near Richland. The plant was involved in producing much of the plutonium for the nation’s nuclear arsenal.Hanford officials issued a report in late March that said a total of 42 Hanford workers inhaled or ingested radioactive particles when they were exposed during contamination events in June and December of last year. Radioactive contamination was also found outside plant offices and inside two dozen vehicles, the report said.Demolition work was halted. Experts studied the dangerous work, looking for ways to make it safer for employees and the environment.“Right now we are planning for a September resumption on demolition,” said Karen Wiemelt, a manager at CH2M Hill Plateau Remediation Company, the private contractor performing the work for the Energy Department. She predicted demolition could be completed by next June.Experts have identified techniques to make the work safer, including better and more frequent monitoring for radioactive contamination, better ventilation, minimizing waste piles and making sure that materials known as fixatives were used according to manufacturers’ specifications, Wiemelt said.
