Structured English Immersion

Students who are at the beginning levels of English language proficiency are placed in Structured English Immersion. These classrooms are taught for the most part in English. The students receive English Language Development (ELD) and academic content through Specially Designed Academic Instruction in English (SDAIE). These students may also receive primary language support from the teacher and/or bilingual instructional assistant. Primary language materials may be used. These classrooms are available at all schools and are a part of the regular education classroom. The students stay in Structured English Immersion until they have acquired reasonable fluency in English.
