CSD Accepting Applications For Dual Immersion Programs

Come learn about Canyons District’s dual immersion language programs, including how to submit an application for your child for the coming school year.

Educators who oversee the dual immersion language program in CSD are holding a Parent Information Night on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at the Canyons Support Services Center, 9361 S. 300 East. The event will be from 6 to 8 p.m.

The deadline to submit applications for the 2013-2014 school year is Nov. 2, 2012.

Access the online application at http://dual.canyonsdistrict.org.

CSD is home to eight dual immersion language programs: Mandarin Chinese-English programs are at Draper, Lone Peak and Ridgecrest elementary schools; French-English programs are at Butler and Oak Hollow elementary schools; and Spanish-English classes are taught at Alta View, Silver Mesa and Midvale elementary schools.

All programs, except for the Midvale program, are for students entering first grade for the 2013-2014 school year. The Midvale Spanish-English dual-language immersion program is for students entering kindergarten for the 2013-2014 school year.

A lottery will be held to determine entrance into the programs if the number of applications is greater than the number of space available in the classes.

Questions? Call the CSD Evidence-Based Learning Department at 801-826-5045.
