Who Can Participate?
The Dual Language Immersion program seeks to enroll students of varying background and all abilities. Applications are open to all students entering 1st grade and 2nd grade. Students proficient in the target language may also be added to 3-7 Grade, if space is available and after an evaluation. However, it may not be a wise choice for children experiencing significant communication delays in their primary language.
How do I apply for the Dual Language Immersion Program?
The online application process for each year is open from March until May 15. After May 15, Ogden School District will continue to receive application past the deadline if there are still spots available in the programs. If programs are full, applicants will be placed on that program's wait lists.
How are students selected for the program?
School and district personnel will determine the number of spaces that will be available for students enrolled at each school, as well as spaces for students not currently enrolled and applying for special permit. The number of spaces available in each category is based on enrollment and may be different at each school, depending on the needs of the school to maintain the traditional and dual language immersion programs.
Students with siblings already enrolled in the Dual Immersion Program will receive priority consideration. Furthermore, our goal in a Dual Language Immersion classroom is to have 50% English speakers and 50% target language speakers. Therefore, students who proficiently speak the target language will receive priority consideration.
