Dual Language Program

Postcard with information about the Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Program

Beginning in the fall of the 2023-24 school year, we will begin Spanish-English Dual Language Immersion (DLI) programming with a 50/50 model (50% core instruction in English, 50% core instruction in Spanish) in Kindergarten at two elementary schools, with two additional elementary feeder schools. The following schools meet the criteria outlined in Wisconsin State Statue 115.95: Northside, Creekside, Westside, and Royal Oaks Elementary Schools for Spanish-English bilingual programming.

Northside Elementary School, a feeder school for Sun Prairie East High School, will host students from Northside and Creekside Elementary Schools. Westside Elementary School, a feeder school for Sun Prairie West High School, will host students from Westside and Royal Oaks Elementary Schools. As students move up to the next grade level, the Dual Language Immersion program will expand upward by one grade each year.

A Bilingual Program Task Force has been assembled with parents/caregivers and staff from our four Dual Language Immersion program schools to guide the development of these programs.
