Dual Language Immersion (DLI)

Two-Way Dual Language Immersion 

In 2017-18, Cesar Chavez Academy became a Dual Language Immersion (DLI) school with its inaugural Kindergarten class. To date, we have two DLI classes per grade level in grades K-3. This program affords students the opportunity to become bilingually and bi-literately proficient in both Spanish and English.  Our program reflects the 90:10 model where the instructional day consists of 90% Spanish and 10% English in Kindergarten, increasing to 50% English and 50% Spanish by fourth grade. Eventually, DLI will phase into the secondary level, where instruction will consist of approximately 30% Spanish and 70% English instruction.  The greatest benefit of participating in the Dual Language Immersion program is achieved by students committed to the full K – 12 DLI program wherein they can receive the State Seal of Biliteracy.
