The application window for Canyons District’s dual-immersion language programs is Jan. 3 to Feb. 4, 2011.

The dual immersion programs, offered in partnership with the State Office of Education, offers students as young as 5 years old instruction in a targeted language, including in the subjects of math, science and social studies, for at least 50 percent of the school day.  

Dual-Immersion programs help student develop the ability to read, write, speak and listen in another language from fully proficient teachers. They also will develop a world cultural understanding and be prepared academically, linguistically and socially for the challenges and needs of our increasingly global society.

The application process is for first-grade students at seven of the eight CSD schools that have dual-immersion classes. Only Midvale Elementary is accepting applications for kindergarten and first-grade students. Dual-immersion programs are offered at the following elementary schools.

  • Spanish-English: Silver Mesa, Alta View, Midvale
  • Mandarin Chinese-English: Ridgecrest, Draper, Lone Peak
  • French-English: Butler, Oak Hollow

Applications are available on the Canyons District Web site, www.canyonsdistrict.org.

Parents with questions about the dual-immersion program or the application process are invited to a “Dual Immersion Information Night” on Jan. 6 from 7 to 8 p.m., in the auditorium of the Canyons Administration Building, 9150 S. 500 West.
