Dual Language Immersion (DLI), also known as Two-Way Immersion, integrates a balanced number of native speakers of a target language (e.g. Spanish), native speakers of English, and bilingual students in the same classrooms. Students’ core content classes are given in two different languages (e.g. Spanish/English), studying each topic routinely in one language. They do not repeat the same content in both languages.
Santa Barbara Unified will launch its first Elementary Dual Language Immersion Program at McKinley Elementary School in the school year 2021-2022 in Kindergarten. Enrollment opens Dec. 1 2020.
