Transitional Bilingual Education (TBE)
Self-Contained and Push-In
The curriculum for transitional bilingual education students is tied directly to the Common Core Standards, Illinois Spanish Language Arts Standards, Woodridge 68 core curriculum, and WIDA English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards. Bilingual education is provided to Spanish speaking students through one or both models of instruction: self-contained and push-in.
Transitional Program of Instruction (TPI)
The Transitional Program of Instruction (TPI) is for non-native English speaking students who have difficulty with written or spoken English. The goal of the program is to help students transition into a general education classroom at high levels of social and academic English proficiency. The program provides support to help students succeed in academic subjects and learn English. The classes count toward graduation requirements.
