Chinese Immersion Programs
For two decades, PPS has offered a Chinese Dual Language Immersion Program with preschool and kindergarten entry points. PPS has partnered with the University of Oregon to build a well-articulated K–16 Chinese immersion and world language program.
An ethnography study, funded by The Language Flagship, examines the historical development of the PPS program, sets forth key components of the PPS model that other districts may replicate, and examines catalysts and disruptors to the language immersion model.
Here is an article from the Center for Global Education highlighting the Chinese Immersion Program at Portland Public Schools.
