We asked former US Secretary of Education and current President and CEO of The Education Trust John B. King Jr. to welcome educators and families to the 2018 Bilingual Education Fair of DC. We got a passionate and encouraging speech filled with gratitude for the work of DC Immersion and the educators who are implementing dual language programs in DC and the region. Thank you Mr. King for your leadership!

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.
