Parents with children completing kindergarten this school year are invited to attend a virtual informational meeting for the district’s Spanish Immersion Program beginning Monday, April 20 through Thursday, April 23.
The Spanish Immersion Program is designed for English-speaking students who are interested in learning Spanish in order to become bilingual, bi-literate and bi-cultural. Only students who have completed kindergarten at a Comal ISD campus and who will be entering the first grade are eligible for the program in the fall of 2020.
Currently, four Comal ISD elementary campuses offer this program including Hoffmann Lane Elementary, Johnson Ranch Elementary, Oak Creek Elementary and Rahe Bulverde Elementary. However, students who attend other Comal ISD elementary schools are invited to apply for the program. If accepted, parents will need to provide their own transportation.
Students who begin this program in the first grade are expected to continue in the program through the fifth grade. Those who successfully complete the Spanish Immersion Program may choose to enter the Comal ISD Advanced Languages Program (CALP) at middle school to continue their Spanish language development.
Anyone interested in the Spanish Immersion Program are asked to complete this form and attend one of the virtual informational meetings where additional criteria will be shared. Parent attendance in one of these meetings is REQUIRED to receive an application.
