Support for bilingual education grows as population shifts
from Austin American-Statesman
The Lake Travis school district in Texas implemented two new programs this semester designed to increase the success of Spanish-speaking students. Hispanic students account for almost 20 percent of the student population of the Lake Travis school district. Because the majority of Spanish-speaking families live within the attendance zone of Lake Travis Elementary, the school is home to the district's newly implemented dual language program, the Gomez and Gomez Enrichment Model, applicable from pre-K until fifth grade. The program is designed to make students proficient in reading in speaking in both English and Spanish by the time they complete the program.
