If there are more qualified applicants than spaces available at the school, a random, unbiased selection process will be conducted. Siblings of current students in the dual language program have priority for attendance. There is no priority point accrual process for Dual Language Education programs. If there are more applicants than spaces available for a given grade, students will be placed on a waiting list.

  • The waiting list number is not disclosed.

  • Students will remain on the waiting list for their first choice with an on-time application even if offered a seat at another program with a late application.

  • Schools will notify parents of students who applied with an on-time or with a late application who are on the waiting list, when a space becomes available. No further action is necessary for parents of students on the on-time or late waiting list.

-- What is a Dual Language Two-Way Immersion (TWI) Program:


Classroom Composition The Dual Language Education Program is designed to provide students the opportunity to receive grade-level standards-based content in English and in a language other than English (target language). This program is designed for both English Learners (ELs) as well as English Speakers (EO, IFEP, SEL, and RFEP).

  • Grades TK, K, and 1 — English Learners (ELs) who speak the target language of the program and English Speakers (EO, IFEP,SEL,RFEP) are eligible to participate.

  • Grades 2 - 12 — English Learners (ELs) who speak the target language of the program are eligible to participate.

  • Grades 2 - 12 — English Speakers (EO, IFEP,SEL and RFEP) may enter the program if their target language performance is on par with peers who are already in the program. To determine eligibility, a target language assessment will be administered to students who have not previously participated in a Dual Language Education Program.

  • By the application deadline, if there are fewer than 50 percent of English Learners or English Speakers to create a balanced classroom composition, the ratio of assignment will be composed of up to 2/3 from either language group.
    * Target language verification may be required for students who are new to L.A. Unified. Program eligibility will be determined by the school site.
