Dare Schools applications now available for Spanish immersion classes

On Monday, Feb. 18, Dare County Schools announced that the Spanish Dual Language Immersion Application window is now open for the 2019-20 school year.

Parents should complete the application posted on the system’s website, daretolearn.org, by 5 p.m., March 1, 2019 or submit a written application available at the elementary schools to the schools or district office in Nags Head by the same deadline.

To be eligible as a rising kindergarten student, the child must be five years old on or before Aug. 31, 2019. These elementary schools started the immersion classes last year: Kitty Hawk, Nags Head, Manteo and Cape Hatteras. These schools are accepting applications only for kindergarten immersion classes.

First Flight Elementary parents may submit an application for rising first graders and for rising kindergarteners.

To ensure equitable access to the program, Dare County Schools will use a lottery system to determine the class lists if class sizes exceed 25 students. A school must have at least 20 students enrolled per class to start a program. If a lottery is necessary, Dare Schools will notify families by March 8, 2019.
