Dual language immersion is a 50/50 instructional model in which students spend half their day learning in English and the other half learning in Spanish or Chinese. Through developmentally appropriate curriculum, students naturally pick up the language as they learn other subjects. The program is based on the total language learning approach incorporating content-based instruction and explicit language instruction. Our goal is that our immersion students will become bi-literate and bilingual.

Within Weber School District there are four language immersion programs. A separate application is required for each program. If you would like more information about a specific program, you are welcome and encouraged to attend an informational meeting hosted by the school principal and a school district representative. Only students entering 1st grade during the 2017-2018 school year are eligible to apply. All applications are due March 23rd, 2017 by 11:59pm.

The Application Process

  1. Carefully review the dual immersion application information packet.
  2. Attend the information meeting if possible (not required)
  3. Complete the application forms for the programs to which you would like to apply. Applications are due by 11:59pm on March 23, 2017.
  4. Your application(s) will be entered into a lottery system. This system is detailed in the dual immersion application information packet.
