Dual Language Program Coming to the Issaquah School District

Posted by Elizabeth Egan on October 22, 2018
Local Levy Funded IconAfter two years of development and preparation, the Issaquah School District will open its first Dual Language Program/Spanish Immersion in the fall of 2019. The program will be hosted at Clark and Issaquah Valley Elementary Schools beginning at the kindergarten level. The Dual Language Program provides content-based instruction to students in two languages. This allows students, over a number of years of participation in the program, to become proficient and literate in both languages, achieve high academic standards across subject areas, and develop cross-cultural understanding and skills. The goal is to balance the number of students in each class who are native English speakers with those who are native Spanish speakers. Providing this program is made possible because of strong community support and the approval of the 2018 levy. More information will be coming this year about the Dual Language Program and the enrollment procedure.
