Canby School District provides Dual Language Immersion (DLI) education for students in grades K-12. K-6 students are served at our DLI Magnet School, Trost Elementary. 7-8 students are served at Baker Prairie Middle School. 9-12 students are served at Canby High School.
Is the DLI Program right for my family?
Commitment to DLI is important for your child to be successful. Learning in two languages is hard, but rewarding. This is a long-term commitment for you and your family.
Will my student learn English in this program?
Yes! Research shows that all students, regardless of what language they speak at home, do as well or better in English than other students in monolingual programs. You may have to be patient. Learning a second language takes time.
How do I support my student if I do not speak English or Spanish?
You do not have to be bilingual to support your students. Read with them every day in your native language. Talk with your children about what they are learning. Connect with other families in DLI and explore our community in order to expose your children to their second language outside of school.
Seal of Biliteracy
Students can earn the Seal of Biliteracy when they graduate. The Seal is a national award, recognized by colleges and universities across the country. It also helps employers seek out bilingual employees who are proficient in reading, writing, speaking, and listening to Spanish. Students must meet regular graduation requirements in order to be eligible for the Seal.
