The Promise of PreK-3rd: Promoting Academic Excellence for Dual Language Learners in Red Bank Public Schools

This case study tells the story of Red Bank, New Jersey’s coherent P-3 approach to educating Dual Language Learners (DLLs) and preparing them for expanded life opportunities. This comprehensive P-3 approach is built upon the following: expanding learning opportunities for young DLL students; integrating P-3 curricula and instructional practices that develop mastery and self-regulation; building intentional community partnerships that support a common goal of educating the whole child; and, implementing multiple-source assessment practices that drive curricula and instructional alignment and teacher quality.
