One-Way Dual Language Program
Lancaster ISD's Emergent Bilingual Program follows the framework of the One-Way Dual Language Program. The One-Way Dual Language Program is an educational approach in which students learn two languages, English and Spanish, through an instructional setting that integrates subject content presented in both languages. The program uses instructional approaches designed to meet the needs of Limited English Proficient students by promoting bilingualism, biliteracy, cross-cultural awareness, and high academic achievement.
The curriculum of the program is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. Bilingual Education is offered only at Houston Elementary for grades PK 4 through 5th grade.
