Charlottesville, Virginia’s Elementary Spanish Program Can Serve as a Guide for Other Programs


The elementary Spanish program is a sequential FLES (Foreign Language in the Elementary Schools) model that is tailor-made for Charlottesville schools. It began with kindergarten and first grade classes during the 2008–2009 school year. Each year thereafter an additional grade level was added. For the 2012–2013 school year, students in kindergarten through fifth grade receive approximately sixty minutes of instruction per week with an elementary Spanish teacher.
