Dual Language Program Design and Support

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A network for educators who enrich children's lives in dual language (DL) programs and support parents' quest for their children to be multilingual, culturally diverse individuals. 

To support dual language programs, we provide:​

  • Professional development, resources and tools to help schools develop successful research-based DL programs,
  • Collaboration and networking opportunities for DL educators and administrators to share best practices, and
  • Technical support to help schools/districts create coherence for their DL programs.

Distance Learning Units en Español

The San Diego County Office of Education Curriculum and Instruction (SDCOE), MEGA, and Innovation Departments have collaborated to design distance learning units of study in Spanish for grades K-3 that are focused on grade level essential learnings in each content area. These units were purposefully designed to integrate content, provide flexibility and choice. The units of study connect content in the following areas: ELA/SLA, Mathematics, Science, History/Social Science, Arts, Computer Science, and Physical Education through integrated study. Assessment opportunities (formative and summative) and student feedback are embedded and intentionally developed. These open-source units are being developed in Google to ensure maximum flexibility for districts to use them with their preferred distance learning instructional platform.
