Consider Enrolling Your New Kindergartner in ISD's Dual Language Program
The Issaquah School District now has a Dual Language Program/Spanish Immersion Program at Clark and Issaquah Valley Elementary Schools. Each year a new group of kindergarten students are added as the previous year’s students roll up to the next grade level. The Dual Language Program provides content-based instruction to students in two languages. This allows students, over a number of years of participation in the program, to become proficient and literate in both languages, achieve high academic standards across subject areas, and develop cross-cultural understanding and skills. The goal is to balance the number of students in each class who are native English speakers with those who are Spanish or Spanish bilingual speakers.
Look for application information for the Dual Language Program as a part of kindergarten registration. If you have questions please contact DualLanguage@issaquah.wednet.edu or visit our website.
