Message from Administration

Dear Monterey Peninsula Unified School District Community,
 
It is with pride that the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District selected a Two-Way Dual Language (TWDL) program to further the goal of graduating students who are prepared for our global communities.  This program is consistent with the district’s goals of preparing students to reach academic targets in both English and Spanish while developing critical intercultural proficiencies. This highly researched based program sets students on the pathway to full bilingualism and biliteracy. Ultimately, they will have the opportunity to attain the California State Seal of Biliteracy on their high school diploma and receive college credit for their work during their K-8 years.  This will afford students a college going mindset and future opportunities for post-secondary study and employment. 

In October of 2018, the Dual Language Academy began its process of aligning  its present Dual Language program through the grade levels working toward a fuller and more focused  implementation. Currently, the DLAMP school program is the only K-8 grade program in MPUSD. DLAMP also the oldest Dual Language program in the District that is committed to moving students into high school with high levels of proficiency in two languages, high academic proficiencies and intercultural skills.

This TWDL Framework outlines the pathway for all students in the program, and provides guidance for teachers and administrators to develop a full understanding of the program at all grade levels.  DLAMP has worked closely with stakeholders to complete this framework. DLAMP and MPUSD are committed to working together in order to continue the successful implementation of all facets of our program.  We are pleased to offer this program to our community and provide our DLAMP students with opportunities that will prepare them to be leaders in a multilingual and multicultural world.

Sincerely,
Mrs. Rita Burks
Principal

Estimada Comunidad del Distrito Escolar Unificado de la Península de Monterey: 
 
Es con orgullo que el Distrito Escolar Unificado de la Península de Monterey (MPUSD) seleccionó un programa de lenguaje dual bidireccional (TWDL) para promover el objetivo de graduar a estudiantes que están preparados para nuestras comunidades globales. Este programa es consistente con los objetivos del distrito de preparar a los estudiantes para alcanzar objetivos académicos, tanto en inglés como en español, mientras desarrollan competencias interculturales críticas. Este programa, altamente investigado, coloca a los estudiantes en el camino hacia el bilingüismo y la alfabetización bilingüe. En última instancia, tendrán la oportunidad de obtener el Sello de Alfabetización Bilingüe (SSB) de California con su diploma de escuela preparatoria y recibir créditos universitarios por su trabajo durante los años K-8. Esto les brindará a los estudiantes una mentalidad universitaria y oportunidades futuras para el estudio post-secundario y el empleo. 
 
En octubre de 2018, la Academia de Doble Inmersión (DLAMP) comenzó su proceso de alinear su programa actual de lenguaje dual a través de los niveles de grado para lograr una implementación más completa y más enfocada. Actualmente, el programa escolar de DLAMP es el único programa de grados K-8 en MPUSD.  DLAMP también tiene el programa de lenguaje dual más antiguo en el distrito que se compromete a trasladar a los estudiantes a la escuela preparatoria con altos niveles de competencia en dos idiomas, alta competencia académica y habilidades interculturales.
 
Este boceto de TWDL describe el programa para todos los estudiantes en el programa y proporciona un guía para maestros y administradores para que desarrollen una comprensión completa del programa en todos los grados. DLAMP ha trabajado en estrecha colaboración con las partes interesadas para completar este boceto. DLAMP y MPUSD se comprometen a trabajar juntos para continuar la exitosa implementación de todas las facetas de nuestro programa. Nos complace ofrecer este programa a nuestra comunidad y brindarles a nuestros estudiantes de DLAMP oportunidades que los preparará para ser líderes en un mundo multilingüe y multicultural.
 

Sinceramente,
Sra. Rita Burks 
Directora
Academia de Doble Inmersión de la Península de Monterey
