DC Immersion is working to quadruple the number of seats in quality dual language programs by 2030 with a focus on low-income and at-risk communities.
By 2023, our goal is:
- The District will have legislation mirroring California and New York giving families a right to bilingual education for their children regardless of language spoken at home.
- 50 school leaders, of which at least half are minority, will be empowered to begin implementing dual language programs in their schools
- Thanks to policy changes and partnerships with universities and teacher training organizations, the District will more than double the number of highly qualified dual language teachers.
- 200 families across all 8 wards of the District, at least 70% in at-risk communities, will become advocates and ambassadors for dual language. An additional 4,000 well-informed families from low-income communities will ensure that demand for dual language programs continues to grow.
