This actually slows down language acquisition and causes cognitive regressions. They need both to accelerate academically.

Recognized by U.S. Department of Education for
Academic development in two languages Pre-K – 5th
Continued development at secondary level or third language.

Simultaneous literacy development
Explicit balanced literacy development in both languages
No transition, only biliteracy development
Academic development in two languages in ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
Closes language and academic gaps by third grade.
Most students have the capacity to test on the STAAR in English 3rd-5th
Biliteracy development continues beyond English acquisition
Students are assessed continuously in two languages
Data driven decisions are used for needed interventions

May bridge from one language to another but no equal access to literacy in the second language.
Sometimes at the expense of their first language
OR Sometimes they never transition
Usually 90/10, 80/20, 70/30, 60/40
upper grades are sometimes 50/50
