Who can participate in the immersion program?

Posted by:

Blue Valley’s Chinese immersion program begins in kindergarten. Students must be five years old by Aug. 31 to be eligible for the program per state of Kansas regulations. Students cannot be current kindergarten students at the time of application.

Heritage speakers can apply but will be treated equally with no preference provided. Preference will be given to siblings of current immersion students, regardless of home school. Students with special needs are also welcome to apply. The IEP team, along with other district administrators, will work with the family to determine if participation in an immersion program best meets each individual student's needs.
