About Our Dual Language Program

Salem-Keizer Public School's dual language program integrates English Learners and English dominant students with the goal of improving the academic and linguistic performance of all participants. Its mission is to develop critically aware, multilingual students who are equipped to build bridges of intercultural understanding between diverse communities and successfully participate in the global community.

Our dual language program's vision is that all students:

  • attain high levels of proficiency in English and Spanish and are able to use both languages effectively in academic and social settings.
  • perform at or above grade level in English and Spanish in all content areas.
  • value and appreciate their own culture and the diversity of our community’s cultures.
  • graduate with an Oregon State Seal of Biliteracy and are prepared to thrive as global citizens.
