The Springfield City School District will launch a Dual Language Program for the 2024-2025 school year in which students will begin the journey to bilingual education.

The pilot year will kick off with a kindergarten and first grade class, consisting of a balance of native Spanish speakers and native English speakers. Half of the students’ day will be taught in English, and the other half will be taught in Spanish. The first year of the program will be housed at Perrin Woods Elementary.

The District’s Dual Language Program is part of a larger 13-year plan. Eventually the classes will incorporate Heritage Spanish Courses in middle school and students will advance toward achieving the Ohio Seal of Biliteracy in high school. 

Research studies have found that students enrolled in a dual language immersion program outperform traditional students in English-only or transitional bilingual programs.
