Due to the lack of Spanish-speakers in the Chávez attendance area, the Board of Education (BOE) reviews the DLI program which has 2 of 3 sections currently functioning as one-way immersion (all English-speakers) with instruction in Spanish 90% (kindergarten) or 80% (1st grade). Considering many factors, the BOE votes to not admit incoming kindergartners into the program and to continue the program of 3 sections in the 2013-14 school year while working with the district and parents to determine the future of the program.
