Leading Dual Language Programs for Student Success

Learn how to enhance or develop your dual language program based on the 7 research-based strands of effective dual language education in the Guiding Principles. Sign on with your leadership team and work collaboratively to make your dual language program the best it can be!


This 15-hour, synchronous online institute, guided by CAL’s decades of experience in connecting research to practice and the CAL publication, Guiding Principles for Dual Language Education, provides information and tools to help school leaders gain a solid understanding of the benefits of dual language education, explore how they can develop a program that promotes student success in two languages, and increase their impact as leaders. 

This session is intended for district and school leaders (to include principals, assistant principals, and teacher leaders) who are seeking to deepen their practical understanding of the “nuts and bolts” of effective dual language programming. Special emphasis is placed on strategies for ensuring language and cultural equity to create an environment where bilingualism, biliteracy, high academic achievement, and sociocultural competence thrive. 

The institute will provide a venue for knowledge building, planning, and networking with peers. In collaboration with colleagues, participants will be invited to actively reflect on their current policies and practices to determine next steps for enhancing or building their programs.
