    Georgetown ISD is proud to now offer a Dual Language Enrichment Program to incoming kindergartners for the 2017-2018 school year.  This program can also be referred to as a two-way immersion program. This program provides special language instruction that will prepare students to become bilingual and biliterate and promotes high academic achievement in two languages.
     
    Dual Language education integrates native English speaking and native Spanish speaking students in the same classroom. Students develop oral and cognitive academic language in both English and Spanish while mastering grade level knowledge and skills in all elementary content areas.
     
    Our program is based on a 50/50 model, in which 50% of the instruction is delivered in English and the other 50% is delivered in Spanish. The program is designed to teach children a second language in a natural way through subject content instruction and everyday classroom conversation.
     
    This will be offered at the following schools:
    • Carver Elementary
    • Mitchell Elementary
    • Purl Elementary
    • Village Elementary 
    • Cooper Elementary
