The goal of the Department of Dual Language (DL) is to support the district goal through multi-lingual programs. Closing the opportunity gap for historically underserved students is a priority. To this end, the department provides multiple pathways and entry points for students to become bilingual and biliterate. A variety of programs are offered to support the diversity of levels of proficiency in the partner languages. Programs for native speakers include native language literacy and dual language immersion. Programs for non-native speakers include world language and dual language immersion. By participating in these programs students may qualify for the Seal of Biliteracy.

The following meetings will be held at Beach School located at 1710 N Humboldt St, Portland, OR  97217

February 18th 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm   English program
February 25th 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm  Immersion program
