If your child is currently in kindergarten, the online application for 2020-2021 opened December 2, 2019 and closed February 21, 2020. All eligible applications received before the deadline will be placed in the lottery for spaces available in the programs. You may still submit an application after the deadline, however, your child will be placed on a wait list according to the date of application. Some schools may continue to receive applications past the deadline if there are still spots available in the program. Please note that if you have a younger child with an older sibling already in the program, and you would like to enroll him/her in Dual Immersion, you must submit an application for that student by the deadline. Siblings have priority in the lottery process if the application is submitted on time. Keep in mind submitting an application does not guarantee placement.
Please note that if you do not live in the boundary of the school to which you apply, you must ALSO submit an open enrollment form to that school before the February 21, 2020 4:00 p.m. deadline in order for your application to be valid. Open enrollment forms are available at any school. Please also note that if your child is selected to attend a dual immersion school other than your home school and you are attending on special permit, any siblings not in the dual immersion program are not guaranteed acceptance of their special permit to the school. However, schools will attempt to accommodate families when space permits. Please visit this link for more information on the Open Enrollment Period.
If your child is currently in 1st grade, please email Kerrie Neu (email@example.com) and she will send you a link to the online application form. After filling out the form, if there is space currently available, you will be contacted to make the arrangements. Otherwise, your child will be placed on a wait list, and you will be contacted when a space becomes available. The following schools may have spots available for current 1st grade students: Spring Lane (Chinese), Diamond Ridge, (French), Morningside (French), and Mill Creek (Spanish).
If your child is currently in grades 2-6 and already speaks the target language, please contact the school directly to apply for any available spots.

Students from Gourley, Oquirrh Hills, South Kearns, Western Hills, Fox Hills and West Kearns Elementary will be tested in their neighborhood schools.

Participation in a dual language immersion program is considered to be a comprehensive educational experience. Beginning in the first grade, paired English and target language teachers collaborate to support student mastery of both the core content standards and target language skills in a full day program. It is our expectation that students who participate in the language immersion experience participate fully in the school academic day and its prescribed instructional design.
