TK-12 Spanish Dual Language Immersion (DLI) Program

***Applications CLOSE on March 1, 2023 for the Spanish Dual Language Immersion (DLI) program for students entering Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten for 2023-2024.
Interested families should submit an application to only one of the following Google Forms: English or Spanish.
Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee placement into the DLI program. Additionally, all families must also complete a new student enrollment along with the application to be considered for the DLI program.
Castro Valley USD now offers a two-way Spanish DLI enriched educational program that provides instruction to both native Spanish speakers (50%) and native English speakers (50%) in the same classroom, assisting them to become bi-lingual, bi-literate, and bi-cultural. To maximize the benefit from the DLI program, it is strongly recommended that students participate through the twelfth grade.
We will be hosting two (2) family informational nights to describe the program and answer questions from stakeholders. The dates are: 
  • Wednesday, November 16, 2022, at 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. (Spanish Only - in person; part of Padres Unidos Meeting)
  • Monday, December 5, 2022, at 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. (English - Virtual) (Spanish and Cantonese Interpretation)
