With the pretext of celebrating its first anniversary, DC Immersion invited all the administrators and key educators of DC’s traditional public and public charter dual language programs to attend a talk by Dr. Robert Slater Co-Principal Investigator of the groundbreaking study on dual language programs in Portland, Oregon. Most of these incredible educators were meeting for the very first time.

Networks that allow the sharing of best practices are reason to celebrate. 干杯!

 

Dear Families, educators, and partners,

In 2020 we announced that the DC Language Immersion Project would close its doors due to lack of resources. However, before completely dissolving the organization, we recently asked a group of local and national educators if they - individually or collectively - would be interested in continuing the work of advocating for multilingual education in the District of Columbia. We are pleased to announce that a few individuals responded yes and volunteered to forge a plan to continue this vital work.

So, we are not closing our doors but we are entering a six-to-twelve-month period of dormancy as we determine the best path forward for the DC Immersion Project.  Thank you for your continued support and please stay tuned for updates.
