On August 31, 2023 Tukwila School District celebrated the launch of our Dual Language Program with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Cascade View Elementary School. Planning for this program has been several years in the making and we are so grateful for the many staff, students, and families who have been a part of bringing this opportunity to the Tukwila School District. Bilingualism and biliteracy are valuable assets and our dual language program aims to provide all students with the opportunity to develop proficiency in two languages (Spanish and English) while also promoting academic achievement, cultural understanding, and a positive self-identity. The program launches with a group of Kindergarten students this year with one grade level being added each year through high school.
