Dual Language Education/Educación de Lenguaje Dual

We are exploring the possibility of starting a dual language program in the Renton School District.

Dual language education is when two language groups (English/Spanish) purposefully learn each other’s languages together with the goal of becoming fully bilingual. Please see the attached powerpoint: Dual Language Study Session

If you are a family with children ages 2-4, Renton School District is hosting a series of Community Conversations about Dual Language Education. At these meetings, families will hear about the benefits of bilingualism and how a dual language program provides another option for college and career readiness.

Families can choose to attend the meeting most convenient for them; no RSVP is needed to attend. Interpreters are available upon request.

For more information or to request an interpreter, contact Norma Cuevas: dual.language@rentonschools.us
