Langley Elementary will house a Dual Language Immersion (DLI) program for the 21/22 school year. Native English and native Spanish-speaking children accepted into the inaugural program for Kindergarten this fall will participate in a 50/50 day of English and Spanish immersion, receiving half their instructional day reading, writing, speaking, and learning in English and the other half in Spanish.
