Cesar Chavez Dual Language Enrichment Program (DLEP)
Grades 4-6

Cesar Chavez Intermediate School offers many special instructional programs that help our students be successful. One of our unique programs is our Dual Language Enrichment Program (DLEP) in Spanish and English. We offer our DLEP students the opportunity to become literate in two languages, and by the time they leave our school, they are bi-literate and bilingual in Spanish and English. Instruction is delivered in English and Spanish by subject. Fifty percent of the instruction is delivered in Spanish and the remaining 50 percent is delivered in English according to applicable subjects (English or Spanish language arts, mathematics, social studies and science). Therefore, we have the 50/50 model, and the bilingual teachers are proficient in both languages.
