Mission Statement

The Bilingual program in Katy ISD is designed to prepare students to become bilingual and bi-literate in order to maximize their potential in a multicultural, diverse global society.

Program Goals

Goal 1: Linguistic ~ Students in the dual language program will develop high levels of oral and written proficiency in both English and Spanish.

Goal 2: Cultural ~ Students in the dual language program will demonstrate positive cross-cultural attitudes and behaviors and high-levels of self-esteem.

Program Models

Katy ISD dual language program models promote both Spanish and English as languages of equal value.

 

  • The One-Way Dual Language Model is a biliteracy program that serves only Spanish speaking students identified as students of limited English proficiency. Literacy and academic subjects are taught to all students through both English and Spanish.

  • The Two-Way Immersion Model is a biliteracy program that serves two student populations - students proficient in English and students proficient in Spanish. Literacy and academic subjects are taught to all students through both English and Spanish.
