LANGUAGE OF INSTRUCTION

It is state policy to ensure the mastery of English by all students, except that bilingual instruction may be offered or permitted in situations in which bilingual instruction is necessary to ensure students' reasonable proficiency in the English language and ability to achieve academic success. English shall be the basic language of instruction in public schools, unless the School adopts a dual language immersion program for elementary students under Education Code 28.0051 [see EGA].
