Leander ISD has adopted the Dual Language Enrichment model for all bilingual classrooms. The goal of bilingual education under this model is to produce bilingual, bi-literate, and bi-cultural individuals across all content areas by 5th grade. The model places great emphasis on challenging all students regardless of language background with high expectations to learn subject matter.

There are two approaches under the Dual Language Enrichment model:
  • One-Way Dual Language supports "one language" groups of students to become bilingual, bi-cultural, and bi-literate. For example, students whose primary language is Spanish would learn in English and Spanish. Since 2009, LISD has been implementing this approach for students whose primary language is Spanish and who are not yet proficient in English upon entering school.
  • Two-Way Dual Language supports "two language" groups of students to become bilingual, bi-cultural, and bi-literate. For example, both Spanish-speaking and English-speaking students would learn in both languages.

Note: If your student qualifies for the bilingual program, the district provides transportation.
