Dual Language Program
More than sixty students are learning in both English and Spanish at FDES in kindergarten, first, and second grade. These students are being taught Social Studies, Science, and Language Arts in English, and Math and Language Arts in Spanish.
The program is modeled after programs designed to run through fifth grade.
FDES hopes to expand the program by one grade each year.
"PBIS” is short for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports. PBIS is a framework or approach for assisting school personnel in adopting and organizing evidence-based behavioral interventions into an integrated continuum that enhances academic and social behavior outcomes for all students.
