Elementary Language Pathways
Structured English Immersion (SEI)
Mainstream identified English learners will be placed in this pathway unless they opt/qualify for any of the pathways below.
Transitional Bilingual Pathway
Parents and guardians of ELs whose dominant language is Spanish may apply to the transitional bilingual pathway.
Dual Language Immersion Pathway
Parents and guardians of ELs whose dominant language is Spanish or who have a certain degree of English-Spanish bilingualism may apply to the DLI pathway. Given the structure of this program, procedures including lottery and primary and target language screening will be in place to ensure equitable access to the pathway and keep a balanced proportion of English dominant, Spanish dominant, and bilingual students. Visit our Dual Language Immersion Program webpage for more information.
Students identified as English learners who are recent arrivals to the country (one year or less) will enter these pathways. Specific screening will take place to determine prior schooling experiences and the personal experiences that may bear an impact on the student’s social emotional well-being.
