What We Do

DC Immersion works in three areas:

Research: In collaboration with District agencies, national and local not-for-profits, research institutes and universities, DC Immersion gathers and analyses data with a view to informing the education, economic and workforce development policies of the District.

Knowledge Dissemination: Through the organization of events, DC Immersion raises awareness about general and specific issues related to achievement, 21st century skills and programming. Through the production of reports, factsheets, articles and newsletters, DC Immersion increases access to available expertise and information.

Support Services and Networks: By creating a connective tissue between existing and future programs across traditional and charter sectors, and by providing coordinated access to professional development, teacher sourcing, materials and funding, DC Immersion supports current and prospective administrators and teachers in the planning and implementation of programs.

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.
