Dual Language Learners



Dual language is a type of bilingual education that promotes bilingualism, biliteracy, and biculturalism among its participants. NEISD utilizes a 90/10 framework in Pre-K and Kindergarten. This means that 90% of instruction is in Spanish and 10% of instruction is in English. As students continue in the program, the percentage of English instruction increases until it is 50% English and 50% Spanish.
