Spanish Dual Language Informational Night is Wednesday, Feb. 27

Incoming kindergarten parents who are interested in learning more about Spanish Dual Language for the 2019-20 school year (non-Spanish speakers only) should attend an informational session at Jane Addams Elementary School Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 6:30 p.m.

Native Spanish speakers whose home school is Jane Addams or Winston Campus will be automatically enrolled in the program.

More detail about Spanish Dual Language including curriculum, language progression and logistics will be presented on Feb. 27. District administration will discuss the potential for the program to expand to other schools as well.

Parents interested in the program should submit letters of commitment by March 22. These letters are NOT timestamped. If there is more interest than space allows, a lottery will be held. Confirmation of placement will be provided in April.
