Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

Habla Espanol?



Hillsborough schools are getting language savvy with the debut of Dimelo, a new television program about the school system for Spanish-speakers.

The first episode, airing Wednesday on The Education Channel, addresses back-to-school topics, from immunization requirements to the dress code. Replays will air through September, followed by new episodes in October and in January.

The show reaches out to the 20 percent of Hillsborough students who say Spanish is the primary language spoken at home. Read more in the district's press release in English and Spanish.
