VUSD Dual Language Program Expansion 


 


 


Background:

In November 2016, California voters approved Proposition 58, also known as the CA Ed.G.E. Initiative. The purpose of the CA Ed.G.E. Initiative is to ensure that all children in California public schools receive the highest quality education, master the English language, and access high-quality, innovative, and research-based language programs that prepare them to fully participate in a global economy.


The CA Ed.G.E. Initiative authorizes school districts and county offices of education to establish language acquisition programs for both native and non-native English speakers, and requires school districts and county offices of education to solicit parent and community input in developing language acquisition programs.


In the 2018-2019 school year Grapevine Elementary began a 50/50 English- Spanish Dual Immersion program in two kindergarten classrooms.  
In the 2020-2021 school year Alamosa Park opened a 90/10 English- Spanish Dual Immersion program in Kindergarten and in 1st grade.


VUSD School board is in support of expanding the Dual Immersion programs.
