Two-Way Immersion (TWI)

  • The school district's Two-Way Immersion (TWI) program development and guidance falls under the Department of English Language Development. The department researched, planned and implemented the program during the 2008-2009 school year. Currently, three elementary schools have a TWI "strand" beginning with kindergarten at two schools and with pre-kindergarten at the third school. The Department of English Language Development is responsible for providing support for the TWI programs and continues to focus on process improvement initiatives. The department evaluates the TWI program implementation as well as the language proficiency of the students in both English and Spanish.
