What happens when Dual Language Immersion (DLI) students transition from fifth-grade to middle school or from eighth-grade to high school? Answers to these questions, and more, will be explained during Canyons District’s online Orientation for parents of secondary DLI learners.
The event will take place virtually in line with COVID-19-related precautions. Families can access the Orientation, along with other resources, on CSD’s online learning portal Canvas anytime between Monday, Sept. 13, and Nov. 5, 2021.
Parents of all middle- and high school-aged DLI students are welcome to watch the orientation, which is highly recommended for fifth- and eighth-grade families. Canyons curriculum specialists will discuss course pathways, high school bridge courses, and the intent-to-continue process that fifth- and eighth-graders are required to complete in order to continue in the program.
The window for completing the Intent to Continue form opens Monday, Sept. 27 and runs through Nov. 5, 2021. This is important, because the forms are used to predict enrollment for the coming school year, which, in turn, ensures that we hire an appropriate number of teachers.
Questions? Canyons curriculum specialists will be available for a virtual Q & A session over Zoom on Thursday, Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. to noon and on Thursday, Oct. 28 from 4 to 6 p.m.
