Dual Language is an additive bilingual program model for Spanish-speaking students and a foreign language immersion program for English-speaking students. In Dual Language Immersion – Two-Way classrooms, native Spanish speakers and native English speakers are taught together in an effort to develop full bilingualism and bi-literacy for both groups of students. The program, curricular, and instructional decisions are based on research on English learners (ELs).
First graders whose primary language is English who did NOT attend a dual language program in Kindergarten must meet criteria for entrance. The criteria is as follows:
• There are seats available for English speakers in the program, AND
• DRA Level of 8 (English) and an EDL level of 1 (Spanish).
Students who participated in a dual language program with another district will be accepted into the NIBSD Dual Language Program provided there are seats available at the home campus.
Native English speaking students in grades 2 – 5 will be considered for the program if they are transferring from another dual language program OR if they meet the criteria below:
In all circumstances, there must be seats available and applicants will be considered in order the applications are received.
