RFC Dual Language Program

Dual Language model

The Dual Language Program began at Reginald Chavez in 2006.  The class was a self- contained group that went from kindergarten through 5th grade in a single strand. 

A Two-Way Dual Language Program consists of:

  • Spanish-speaking and English-speaking students combined in the same educational environment to provide communicative and academic language development through an interactive and cross-cultural setting. 
  • Core content areas are taught in both Spanish and English, equally.  First language Spanish and English Literacy are taught in 1st and 2nd grades depending on the needs of the students.

The ultimate goal of a dual language model is to develop a Pre-K to 12th grade and beyond sequence, for truly fluent, balanced bilingualism in academic and social settings.

Please call the principal or instructional coach for more information about the dual language program at 764-2008.
