Dual Language Program at Green

Vision - We will support our student's growth by creating welcoming classrooms that are Spanish and English language rich with high expectations.  


All students will:

  • Be at or above grade level

  • Develop high levels of Spanish and English proficiency aligned with Content Core Standards (CCS)

  • Demonstrate positive cross-cultural proficiency



Literacy incorporates more English using strategies from” Biliteracy from start” creating more cross language connections. We will incorporate more language connections in Science and Social Studies  

Math will use bridging strategies. Some units will be taught in Spanish and some in English to help students to make cross cultural connections.

Alignment within grade levels. Intentional alignment within grade levels and concepts

DDL 4-5 share one teacher to continue learning in Spanish.


Spanish literacy will be taught through Social Studies and Science content areas.
