Under budgetary constraints, the Encinitas Union School District is considering a consolidation of its heralded dual-language immersion program which operates at both Paul Ecke and Capri Elementary schools. Administrators propose to put all of the dual-language-program kids at Capri, and implement over several years.
From the Capri Elementary School website:
The Dual Language Immersion Program is a challenging and rigorous academic program in which Spanish is used as the primary language of instruction. The classroom population is half English-speaking children and half Spanish speaking children. The program implements a 90/10-immersion model in which K-1 students receive 90% of their instruction in Spanish, and 10% in English.
