Exciting Update: TK at Conejo Elementary Will Be Part of the Spanish-English Dual Language Immersion Program Launch Next School Year

The Conejo Valley’s first Spanish-English Dual Language Immersion Program arrives August 2022 to Conejo Elementary School! It was previously announced that the program would be available to kindergarten students, and we are excited to share that TK at Conejo Elementary will also be part of the Dual Language Immersion Program launch for the 2022-2023 school year. 


What is Dual Language Immersion (DLI)?
DLI is a research-proven instructional approach that prepares students to think, read and write in two languages, resulting in students becoming bilingual, biliterate and bicultural. In our 50/50 program structure model students will spend half their instruction time in English and half in Spanish.

What are the Benefits of DLI?

Bilingualism and biliteracy prepares students to think more broadly and critically, results in higher language arts and match achievement and increases career pathways opportunities in their adulthood. Dual Language Immersion programs are additive - meaning that a child does not lose their native language, but instead strengthens their native language plus adds a second language.

 

Who is Eligible to Enroll?

Students beginning transitional kindergarten (TK) and kindergarten in the 2022-2023 school year are eligible to be a part of the CVUSD’s first classes of English-Spanish DLI learners.
