It is designed for all administrators, teachers, lead/resource teachers, and school board members who are planning for or who are in the early stages of implementing a new TWBI/DL program. The institute will include program definitions, design, critical features, rationale, and basic components for implementation.

This session will address the research base, purpose, philosophy, goals and key features of Two-Way Bilingual Immersion programs. The overview is intended for all new program administrators, teachers, research personnel, school board members, and parents.

From the onset of a new high school program to the development of empowered students, come join us as we share our journey, philosophies, struggles, and commitment to social justice and equity through our dual immersion program. We will share with you how we developed and expanded our program as well as our program structure and graduation requirements. Although in our seventh year of implementation we continue to grow and adapt to meet the needs of our students. If you’re interested in networking and connecting with other high school programs to learn and grow, then this workshop is for you. We will demonstrate how our commitment to social justice, equity, and culturally responsive curriculum has helped to shape students who are critically conscious, empowered, and agents for social change.
