At the selected schools, there are two (2) classrooms of students enrolled in Spanish immersion at the designated grade levels. The target enrollment will be approximately 22 students in each classroom.

The immersion program will be co-taught by two teachers. One teacher will offer instruction almost entirely in Spanish, and the other will offer instruction almost entirely in English. The students will move between these two primary classrooms throughout their school day.

The program begins in kindergarten and continues at least through 2nd grade. Throughout the three-year pilot, Eanes ISD will continually evaluate whether to extend immersion instruction into additional grades. Families who enroll a student in the program are committing to enroll the student in the program for its entirety to receive the full benefit and continuity of language immersion throughout the elementary grades.
