Bilingual/ESL Education Overview
The Bilingual/ESL Program is committed to promoting academic excellence, equity, and access for English learners in Birdville ISD. It oversees the following language programs:
- One-Way Dual Language

Within these programs, we ensure that every child’s native language, culture, background, and interests are respected and utilized in the learning process. Additionally, best practices for English Learners (ELs) are implemented to accelerate the academic progress in all content areas. This will build and develop communication skills and cognitive academic language naturally.
We serve approximately 4,800 ELLs in grades PK - 12. English Learners in Birdville ISD represent more than 27 different languages. Spanish and Vietnamese are the highest represented primary languages. We embrace the diverse population and strive to provide high quality, differentiated instruction to meet the needs of our English Learners.
