If you are accepted into an immersion program in an area out of your normal school boundary, you will need to fill out a boundary variance form at the immersion school that has accepted your child. The schools will not accept any boundary variance forms until AFTER the selection process has been completed in mid-April.” You do NOT need to apply for a variance application until your child is selected for the immersion program.
If your child is currently in kindergarten or 1st grade and wants to join an immersion program for the 2017-2018 school year, please fill out an application and turn it in to the school of your choice. If there is available space, you will be notified by the school, or your child will be placed on a waiting list until such time as a space becomes available.”
If your child is currently in grades 1-6 and already speaks the target language, please contact the school directly to apply for any available spots.
Participation in a dual language immersion program is considered to be a comprehensive educational experience. Beginning in kindergarten, paired English and target-language teachers collaborate to support student mastery of both the core content standards and target language skills. It is our expectation that students who participate in the language immersion experience participate fully in the school academic day and its prescribed instructional design.
