Planners have created a three-phase implementation. Year One (2008-09) has a focus on language and literacy in English and Spanish, including an afterschool program that offers Spanish as a foreign language. Year Two (2009-10) branches into math, bilingualism and best practices for lesson delivery, design and differentiation for diverse and English language learners.
Year Three (2010-11) adds a dual-language component: One class that enrolls both English and Spanish speakers will journey from kindergarten through fifth-grade together and receive instruction in both languages. It is expected that all of those students will become bilingual, and parents who want their English-speaking children to learn Spanish can volunteer to place them in the dual-language class.
