One-Way Dual Language Program

  • In RCSD, the Prekindergarten One-Way Dual Language program model of 90/10, allows Spanish-speaking students to have the opportunity to develop bilingually. The teacher and paraprofessional provide instruction in Spanish (90%) and English (10%). The goal of this program is for students to develop Spanish literacy and begin to develop English oral language proficiency in order to be bilingual, biliterate, and bicultural.
