Dual Language Immersion
90/10 Dual Language Immersion Program
What does our dual immersion program offer?
At Mammoth Elementary school, we have an option for a 90/10 Spanish/English program. Students receive Instruction in two languages 90% in Spanish and 10% in English, with English instruction increasing 10% until 50/50 is reached in the 4th and 5th grades.
Mammoth Unified School District Board is committed to ensuring that all students are college and career ready in literacy no later than the end of high school. Recognizing that we live in a global society, biliteracy is an important skill that the District desires for all students. The following K-12 programs highlight the MUSD Pathway to biliteracy: K-5 Dual Language Program.
It is the intent of the Mammoth Unified School District that:
●The Dual Language program serves as an evidence-based program for MUSD’s English Learners.
●The program will be based upon the most current research on second language acquisition and dual language education.
●The Dual Language program begins in Kindergarten and progresses continuously through 5th grade.
●MUSD will work within the realities of the financial and staffing resources of the District to provide the best possible program.
●The goal of the MUSD K-5 Dual Language program is that all students will attain native-like proficiency in English and attain functional competence in Spanish.
