Dual Language Program Registration

Students must begin the bilingual, biliteracy program in kindergarten with a goal of students completing fifth grade comfortable and fluent in both Spanish and English communication they’ve achieved speaking, writing and reading in both languages at equal skill levels. The program also promotes cross cultural awareness

Students will learn to read and write in their native language in kindergarten and first grade in their language arts classes. In second grade, students will begin
learning to read and write in their second language.

All math instruction is in English. All science and social studies instruction is in Spanish.

The program makes extensive use of bilingual pairs to provide students the opportunities to master both the academic content and the acquisition of a second
language. Our Two-Way Dual Language Program is based at Travis Elementary for kindergarten through third grade.

Craig Toney is the dual language program director. Michelle Wallace is Travis Primary principal and Sonia Cordova is program assistant. For additional information about the dual language program, call (903) 885-2153. Extension 1148 or send an email to [email protected]
