Beginning next year, LeConte Elementary School will only offer Two–Way Immersion (TWI) classes to its incoming kindergartners.
The TWI Program allows teachers to integrate the Spanish language into their education throughout elementary school and middle school. Students become biliterate as they study their subjects in Spanish as well as in English.
The TWI program is currently offered in only one classroom per grade level at Thousand Oaks Elementary, LeConte Elementary, Rosa Parks Elementary, Cragmont Elementary, and Longfellow Middle School, but that is soon to change.
