We help strengthen existing programs and implement new programs by connecting teachers and administrators and equipping them with best practices, access to grants, resources and professional development.

We are working with four existing dual language programs to support their replication or expansion plans, assisting two non dual language programs in exploring the implementation of a dual language program, and advising a prospective dual language public charter school applicant and assisting dual language schools in their outreach to communities historically left out of the dual language conversation. The combined impact of this work is likely to result in several hundred additional seats in quality dual language programs.

“We relied on DC Immersion’s research and advice in our planning of a second site hopefully east of the river, and we hope to work with DC Immersion to engage our old and new communities and to develop our new staff”
