Two-Way Dual Language


The goal of the Two-Way Dual Language Program is for students to develop bilingualism and biliteracy in both English and a partner language, demonstrate high levels of academic achievement, and cultivate positive cross-cultural attitudes. Balanced numbers of native English speakers and native speakers of the target language are taught literacy and academic content in both languages so that each group serves in the role of the language model and language learner as they acquire knowledge in core academic areas. Students who enroll in the OCPS Two-Way Dual Language Program will learn to read, write, and speak in English and Spanish. Classroom demographics begin with 50% ELLs and 50% native English speakers in kindergarten/ first grade. If an ELL student exits the ESOL program, they may continue in the Two-Way Dual Language Model.
