If your child is in kindergarten for 2023-2024, the online application will open November 17, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. and will close February 2, 2024 at 11:59 p.m.. All eligible applications received before the deadline are 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 may 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 when you receive your placement for the program, then you must also fill out the open enrollment form attached to the Parent Commitment Form in order for your application to be valid. 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 in 1st grade for 2023-2024, and you would like to apply for a spot this year, please contact the school directly to see if there is a space or available or to be placed on the wait list.
If your child is in grades 2-6 for 2023-2024 and already speaks the target language, please contact the school directly to apply for any available spots.
If you wish to have your child tested for the West Kearns Gifted Dual Immersion Program, please contact Jannette LaRose at 385-646-4620. Students from Gourley, Oquirrh Hills, South Kearns, Western Hills, Fox Hills and West Kearns Elementary will be tested in their neighborhood schools. Students who attend other schools must make arrangements to attend a testing session at the Granite Education Center, 2500 S. State Street, SLC, UT in the spring.
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.
