What is Dual Language Pathway?
Following Board Goals direction and district’s Strategic Plan focused on Student Learning Design & Educational Equity, Dual Language Pathway implementation was recently approved by our Board of Trustees as Richardson ISD’s new bilingual program model.
Dual language is a research based program model used worldwide to foster language & literacy development. It has recently been recommended by TEA as the most successful bilingual model showing high academic achievement through the development of bilingualism, biliteracy, and socio-cultural competence among all participating students.
Dual language is an enrichment program that provides content instruction in both English & Spanish. Richardson ISD will be offering Dual Language One-Way with a rollout implementation in selected elementary schools starting Fall 2020.
