Directory of Two-Way Bilingual Immersion Programs in the United States
This directory is part of a long-term research project on two-way bilingual immersion education in the United States. It includes information on over 250 two-way bilingual immersion programs in 23 states and the District of Columbia. These programs are designed to provide content and language arts instruction in two languages (English and another) to classes containing both native speakers of the non-English language and English. The programs seek academic excellence and bilingual proficiency for all students. Each profile contains information such as program size and design, student demographics, location and contact persons, and the languages used. The Directory is searchable by various criteria and includes links to tables and graphs that summarize key information about two-way immersion programs.

Directory of Secondary Newcomer Programs in the United States
This revised directory was created as part of a long-term research project on newcomer programs. It contains profiles of 115 middle and high school newcomer programs at 196 sites across 29 states and the District of Columbia. Newcomer programs serve recent immigrant, secondary students with little or no English proficiency and often limited formal schooling. The programs seek to provide students with a strong foundation in English language development, acculturation to U.S. schools, and subject area knowledge, in preparation for the transition to English as a second language, bilingual, and/or mainstream classes. Each profile describes program location, size, and length of enrollment; student demographics; features of instruction and assessment; program staffing; other services offered; and program contacts. The Directory includes new programs as well as updated information about programs profiled in previous directories.
