San Felipe Del Rio CISD’s reform of the Bilingual Program provides new opportunities for teachers to routinely implement purposeful linguistic accommodations through tiered classroom instruction for ELL students throughout the course of the school year.

San Felipe Del Rio CISD is proud to offer Bilingual Academies for recent immigrants and students who demonstrate limited beginning or intermediate level of English language proficiency at four elementary campuses across the district. Located at Buena Vista Elementary, Dr. Lonnie Green Elementary, Garfield Elementary and Ruben Chavira Elementary, academy students are provided specialized and intensive support until they have reached an advanced level of English proficiency, or have participated in the program for two consecutive academic years of study.

English learners who demonstrate an advanced or an advanced-high level of proficiency are also provided intensive linguistic support at their home-based campuses while they continue to make progress and master proficiency of the English language.
