• The Spanish bilingual late-exit education program in KISD is a full-time program of instruction in which students identified as Emergent Bilinguals are served in both English and Spanish and are prepared to meet reclassification criteria to be successful in English-only instruction not earlier than six or later than seven years after the student enrolls in school. Instruction in this program is delivered by a teacher appropriately certified in bilingual education for the assigned grade level and content area. The goal of late-exit transitional bilingual education is for program participants to use their primary language as a resource while acquiring full proficiency in English. This model provides instruction in literacy and academic content through the medium of the student's primary language, along with instruction in English that targets second language development through academic content. 

    The Spanish bilingual program is offered at six campuses: Harker Heights Elementary, Killeen Elementary, Peebles Elementary,  Pershing Park Elementary, Oveta Culp Hobby Elementary (PreK-3 only), and Trimmier Elementary Schools. 

    For additional information, please call your student's campus.
