    Dual Language Immersion Program Act

    This Act creates a pilot program, the Dual Language Immersion Program. It directs the State Board of Education to develop a course taught in one of the “critical languages” (as listed by the federal National Security Language Initiative, including Chinese, Arabic, Russian, Hindi, and Korean), which can be either a traditional course or through digital or interactive course modules. The Board shall notify districts of the course’s availability, and may expand the program to include more course offerings subject to demand and available resources. The Act also funds incentives to 15 qualifying schools for offering pilot programs in Chinese, Spanish, French, and Navajo, as well as a 50-50 English-foreign language instructional model. This policy, after amendments, was approved unanimously.
