Canyons District has started accepting applications for its Dual Language Immersion Programs for the 2017-2018 school year.
From Monday, Oct. 3 to Wednesday, Nov. 23, parents and guardians can apply online to have their children learn Spanish, French or Mandarin Chinese.
In addition, parents and guardians who have questions about the programs are invited to a Parent Information Night on Wednesday, November 2. The 6 p.m. event will be in the Jordan High School Atrium. 95E Beetdigger Blvd.
Please note, that students with siblings currently enrolled in a Dual Language Immersion school must still submit applications by the Nov. 23 deadline. A lottery will be held to determine entrance into the programs if the number of applicants exceeds the 56 seats available per entering class.
On the application, parents will be asked to list their top three preferred languages and schools. All programs, except for the one at Midvale Elementary, are for students entering first grade in 2017-18. The Midvale Spanish-English program is for students entering kindergarten in 2017-2018.
Spanish also is offered at Alta View and Silver Mesa. French is taught at Butler Elementary and Oak Hollow. The schools offering Mandarin are Draper Elementary, Lone Peak, and Ridgecrest.
