7 Reasons Why to Register Your Dual Language Program on The National Directory
There are many schools that offer dual language education (and growing!) but finding the program that will be most beneficial for a student can be a tough task. Schools offering a dual language or immersion program needs to ensure they support all students to reach high levels of academic achievement and biliteracy. The program must provide a safe and engaging learning environment that values multiculturalism while preparing students to be college and career ready in an increasingly competitive generation.
Your school’s registration on the National Directory at duallanguageschools.org will be beneficial in the following ways.
1.Draw Attention To Your Program: Not all students, particularly ELLs, are aware of which schools offer such programs in their area. Most parents these days depend on online information for their queries. Registering your school on the National Directory will allow your school to be found when anyone searches for DL programs in their state.
2. Connect with Other Programs: Another huge benefit is that your school can connect with other institutions offering bilingual programs across the country. You can calibrate and acquire best practices that will enable your program to stay at the current standard.
3. Find Teachers for Your Program: If your school is falling short of teachers or educators with experience in DL programs, then you can use this platform to search for highly qualified teachers.

The directory can help you in finding the nearest program in your area and connect you to them so you can apply for a position there!
