NEISD Language Programs
Dual Language Program
Newcomer ESL Curriculum
DUAL LANGUAGE PROGRAM
The Dual Language Program Model in NEISD is an enriched education program that provides instruction for native English speakers and native Spanish speakers in both languages.
When possible, classes will be comprised of half native English speakers and half native Spanish speakers.
The building of classes is dependent on the number of English Language Learners (Spanish dominant) students enrolled in that grade level.
English Language Learner students are identified by mandated state assessments.
English as a Second Language Program
Newcomer Program provides a safe and scaffolded learning environment where diversity is valued in transitioning students to meet high expectations for language acquisition, academic achievement, and responsible citizenship.
The NEISD Newcomer program is for recent arrival of refugees or asylees. This program provides the support of a safe learning environment in order for the students to begin acclimating to U. S. schools. The newcomer program assists students by providing the linguistic, cognitive, and academic needs while holding high standards. The students will participate in the program for no more than 2 years as it depends on an individual student basis.
