Middle Level Bilingual Immersion Program
We are excited to share with you that we are in the planning stages of initiating a Middle Level Bilingual Immersion Program, located at Kaleidoscope Academy (KA).
The goal of bilingual education is full bilingualism, biliteracy, and biculturalism. A bilingual education program seeks to fully develop both languages, in this case, Spanish and English. Over time, both English-speaking and English language learning students become proficient in both languages and demonstrate large gains in academic achievement.
The District Middle Level Bilingual Immersion program would provide content area instruction in Spanish and English. Special Education services will be provided based on a student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
Instructional support for English Language Learners enrolled in the bilingual immersion program will focus on the development of English through content area instruction.
Students should have some Spanish and English skills to be included in the program.
Students interested in enrolling in the program will complete the AASD Middle Level Bilingual Immersion Program Registration form and register for their choice of 7th grade elective options.
