    Responses to the applications will be given on a rolling basis beginning in February 2019 throughout the fall for complete applications (including attendance of a parent information meeting) until spaces are filled. Completing the application does not guarantee placement in the program.

    Limited spaces are available in the Spanish Immersion Program.  Requests are processed based on priority categories in the order in which they are received after attendance at an informational meeting.  First grade placement may include other criteria. Transportation for the Spanish Immersion program is not provided.  Students seeking placement for grade levels in 2nd grade or higher must qualify pending other criteria, which includes a formal assessment. You will be contacted to schedule an assessment during the summer.

    Spanish Immersion Program for Siblings (Kinder/1st in the 2019-2020 School Year)--Returning Families 

    If your child is currently in the Spanish Immersion Program and he/she has a younger sibling going into Kinder or 1st grades in 2019-2020, the sibling is eligible for priority enrollment.  The priority enrollment window for siblings is December 3rd through December 21st, 2018.  Further information, including the application, will be provided through campuses and social media around that time.  

    Since returning families already have experience in the program, it is not necessary to attend another parent information meeting for the 2019-2020 school year.
