Academic Needs
In order to meet the academic needs of English learner students, the San Bernardino City Unified School District will provide every English learner an effective, quality, research-based, instructional program and equitable educational experiences to empower them to become well-prepared, contributing members of a global society.

Our Goals for English learners:

  • Develop fluency in English in each student as effectively and efficiently as possible
  • Develop high levels of proficiency in English and Spanish in Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE), Dual Immersion (DI), and Trilingual Immersion (TI) programs.
  • Provide equal opportunity for academic achievement
  • Ensure that each student meets or exceeds grade-level California content standards
  • Increase students' positive self image
  • Promote cultural sensitivity and awareness
