Bilingual Program

Meeting the needs of students from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds

The bilingual program at Eastgate Elementary addresses the developmental language needs of students in kindergarten through fifth grade from linguistically and culturally diverse backgrounds, helping them achieve the high content and performance standards expected of all students in the Kennewick School District. The program helps English Language Learners (ELLs) to become proficient in English and Spanish in order to meet state learning standards.
