DUAL LANGUAGE IMMERSION PROGRAM
Educating high achieving bilingual and bi-literate global citizens prepared to excel in the 21st century.
The Mission of NCLUSD’s Dual Language Immersion Program is to provide a rigorous educational opportunity of choice that students will be linguistically and academically successful, value diversity, attain a global perspective and develop a community spirit, supported by staff, parents and the community.
WHAT IS DUAL LANGUAGE IMMERSION?
Dual Language Immersion is a research-based language program model with proven results where the outcome for both native English and native Spanish speakers is to become literate and fluent in two languages.
The Dual Language Immersion Action Team updated the District’s English Learner Master Plan. The Plan was approved by the NCLUSD Board of Trustees on June 25, 2013.
