Multilingual Learner Program

  • About the Program
    About one-third of our students enroll in Oceanside schools knowing little or no English. In keeping with our mission to educate every student for success in the global community, we are pleased to offer four programs taught by teachers specially trained to address the needs of English learners. Students with minimal English skills enroll in our Structured English Immersion Program, where instruction is primarily in English and designed to help students learn English as rapidly as possible while giving them special assistance in math, science and history.
  • Programs Offered

    The Oceanside Unified School District is committed to providing effective educational program options for English learners that meet district and state standards for English competence and academic achievement.

    The English Learners Master Plan explains the various program options for English learners. We are proud to offer our English learners the following educational pathways:

    Structured English Immersion Program (SEI)
    Two Way Bilingual Immersion Program (TWBI)
    Newcomer Program (In Progress)

    Through the SEI Program students develop grade-level English skills while also having access to grade-level curriculum. English Learners receive English Language Development (ELD) as well as instruction in all content areas such as math, science, history and physical education. English Learners receive ELD from a certificated teacher until they meet our criteria to be reclassified as Fluent English Proficient.
