The goal of the DLI program is acquisition of academic proficiency in English and Spanish, together with mastery of grade level core content and performance standards.  Instruction is in English and Spanish.  Students are expected to meet grade level standards in both languages.  Students typically continue in the program after attaining proficiency in their second language.  Ideally, students would begin the program in Kindergarten and continue through Grade 8.  This program is open to English Learners or English native speakers and other English fluent students by parental choice.  Students are expected to achieve reasonable fluency in the second language within 3-4 years.  This program is offered at Curren, Driffill, Elm, Chavez, Harrington, Kamala, Lemonwood, McKinna, Ramona and Soria.
