You will have the opportunity to visit an established dual language school and learn how they are providing quality instruction and learning opportunities.

School Visits

School visits will begin with a program overview, followed by demonstrations and celebrations, and will conclude with a Q&A with a focus on leadership. Notifications of your exact school assignment and information on your visit will be sent via email the week of October 14th.
