Program Options for English Learners

We provide our families of English learners (EL) multiple opportunities throughout the year to learn about the Los Angeles Unified School District's Master Plan instructional program options. The LAUSD provides five different instructional program options tailored to meet the diverse needs of English learners (ELs) and the educational preferences of the parents of ELs in elementary schools.  

The programs are:

  • Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE) Program 
  • Maintenance Bilingual Education Program 
  • Dual Language Two-­Way Immersion Program
  • Mainstream English Program
  • Structured English Immersion (SEI) Program 

Parents of ELs may choose any of these programs.  All five instructional program options guarantee access to a full curriculum with scaffolds and support for students in elementary grades at different levels of English language proficiency.
