Elgin ISD is currently offering the opportunity for current pre-kindergarten students to begin learning Spanish next year in kindergarten at both Booker T. Washington and Neidig Elementary Schools as part of the Elgin ISD Two-Way Dual Language Program. There will be a Two-Way Dual Language parent information webinar on Tuesday, May 19 from 6 to 7 p.m. The link to the webinar can be found on the Elgin ISD website.
This information meeting is for all parents of pre-kindergarten students entering kindergarten in fall 2020 who are interested in obtaining more information and/ or registering their child. Transfer requests will be considered for students who reside outside of the Neidig and Booker T. Washington elementary school boundaries.
The Two-Way Dual Language kindergarten teachers at both schools offer opportunities for rigorous instruction in all content areas, and at the same time, the opportunity to acquire Spanish as a second language. An English-speaking teacher is paired with a bilingual Spanish-speaking teacher to provide instruction in both languages.
