The Lower Kuskokwim School District is implementing a Dual Language Model curriculum. The Gómez & Gómez Dual Language Enrichment (DLE) Model was originally developed in 1995 and first implemented in 1996 in the Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD in South Texas. The implementation of this model has since expanded to over 450 schools across 3 states. Today, it continues to demonstrate its effectiveness based on successful short and long-term student achievement. Akiuk Memorial School's mission statement is to provide the best educational programs in both Yup'ik and English and the DLE Model is how we are working to fulfill that mission.
