Two-way Dual Language Program
The district’s dual language model is an educational approach in which students learn two languages, English and Spanish, in an instructional setting that integrates subject content presented in both languages. The primary goals of a dual language program are:
• The development of fluency and literacy in English and another language (Spanish) for all students, with special attention given to English language learners participating in the program; and
• The promotion of bilingualism, bi-literacy, cross culture awareness and high academic achievement.
Bryan Independent School District offers Two-way Dual Language Enrichment Programs at Johnson Elementary and Henderson Elementary. The program is open to any Bryan ISD incoming kindergartner who meets the application, evaluation and placement guidelines for the upcoming school year.
The Two-way Dual Language Program focuses on the language acquisition opportunities for students to develop bi-literacy. When adhered to, the designation of LOI by content provides a consistent program for students from grade-to-grade and school-to-school. Keeping in mind the district goal of bilingualism and bi-literacy, consistent LOI provides a framework for developing and maintaining the heritage language of the student while acquiring the second language.
The Two-way Dual Language Programs at Henderson and Johnson require a 6-year commitment (kindergarten through fifth grade), and parents must provide transportation to and from school if the student lives outside the Henderson or Johnson school zones.
