Canyons District on Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2015 started accepting applications to its Dual Language Immersion Programs for the 2016-2017 school year.
The deadline to submit an application is Nov. 20, 2015.
In addition, parents and guardians who have questions about the programs are invited to attend a Parent Information Night on Tuesday, Oct. 27, 2015 at the Canyons Administration Building-East, 9361 S. 300 East. The event will be from 6 to 8 p.m. in the building’s Professional Development Center.
CSD is home to eight elementary Dual Language Immersion 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 2016-2017 school year. The Midvale Spanish-English dual-language immersion program is for students entering kindergarten for the coming 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.
