Welcome to the AZ Dual Language/ Immersion Network (DL/I)

We are called the "DL/I" Network because as we grow we want to stay true to the research based models in the field. There is a difference between Dual Language (tpically two-way) and Immersion (typically one-way). If you are not using the correct terminology, no worries, more definitions can be found here:

* Please add or update your school profile HERE.

* Please help update our contact directory to stay connected to the field (please review and leave any edits in RED)

This is a grassroots network of dual language and/or world language immersion programs under the AZ Language Association umbrella organization! Do you...

  • meet the criteria to be a dual language/world language immersion program
    • at least 50% of your day is in a partner language to English
    • academic content is taught in the partner language
  • believe that an DL/I program should be open to ALL students
  • agree to adhere to the DL/I Fidelity Assurances
  • have set performance targets using either:
  • want to connect with other DL/I educators outside of your school or district
  • are willing to share your resources, successes and challenges
  • are able to join one of the network's site visits
  • are on the path to proficiency following the AZ Native & World Language Standards (as well as ACTFL)
