The Chandler Unified School District Dual Language Immersion (DLI) program is a program of choice designed to provide participating students with instruction in English as well as a second language. Academic content is delivered in both languages. The goals for this program include bilingualism, bi-literacy, cultural awareness, and global citizenship. Students attain high levels of proficiency in both English and either Mandarin Chinese or Spanish, while learning grade-level academic content. CUSD has chosen a 50/50 model for our DLI program, which insures a balanced and integrated delivery of language and content.
