Language Immersion Program

District Seeking Parent Input on Language Immersion Program

Richland One is exploring the possibility of starting a language immersion program next school year, and district administrators want to know what parents think of that idea.

Unlike a foreign language class, in a language immersion program, all or a significant portion of the academic day is taught in another language, including core subjects such as math, science and social studies.

“Students wouldn’t speak English; they would speak that target language from the beginning of that period of time until the end of that period of time. They truly would be immersed in that language,” said Superintendent Dr. Craig Witherspoon.

The district is seeking input from parents to gauge their level of interest in a language immersion program and to find out which languages they would be interested in their children learning through the program. Richland One parents are encouraged to take the survey, which will be open through November 10, 2015.
