Adelante Implementation – Zoom Update Sessions
Dear DLI Teachers,
Below you will find the recording of the two Zoom sessions from December 15th and 17th, which provided some additional information regarding the implementation process of Adelante, as well as information on how to navigate the program’s features.
Literacy Program Adoption – Zoom Sessions
Dear Spanish DLI Teachers,
We are looking forward to seeing you at the Zoom session scheduled for Nov. 13.
This session has been scheduled to process any lingering questions that teachers may have after going through the tutorials. Each session will be hosted by Benchmark consultants and representatives of the Utah State Spanish DLI Team.
Please click on the thumbnails below to see a recording of the Zoom sessions held in November.
It is very important that you continue to use the Transitional Plan until you have all the materials, have watched all the tutorials, have attended one of the Zoom sessions and you can access your TRS (Teacher Resource System).
Please visit this page regularly to stay up to date with the latest news regarding the literacy adoption.

Literacy Adoption Update (Oct 12)
Dear Elementary Spanish Teachers, Principals, Coordinators and LEAs,
Here is the latest update on the literacy adoption and adaptation process:
On October 15th and 16th, the current transitional portal will start looking very differently. Benchmark recommends that we try not to use the transitional portal on these two days, as they will be doing a simultaneous portal upload for all the participating schools.
Below is the tutorial rollout schedule:
- October 19–Tutorial #1 (Walkthrough of the visual packing list and portal).
- October 19—Tutorial #2 (Walkthrough of the 6-week unit plan). This tutorial will have two versions:
- K-1 grades
- 2-6 grades
- October 26—Tutorial #3 (Use of anchor charts and annotating routines)
