(The link will be live from January 30th through February 17, 2023.)
The application window for Horizon Elementary’s Dual Language Immersion program will be open from January 20, 2023, until February 17, 2023. Any kindergarten-aged student starting the first grade in fall 2023 may apply. A lottery will be held to determine entrance into the program if the number of applicants exceeds the seats available.
Elementary students in the dual language immersion program spend half the day learning core subjects in English and the other half learning in a target language (Spanish). The program continues through high school, where students can work to pass the Advanced Placement exam in the 9th or 10th grades and take college-level courses for early college credit.
Please note: Students with siblings currently enrolled at Horizon must submit applications by the Feb. 17, 2023, deadline. Also, if you do not live in Horizon’s attendance boundaries, you must fill out an out-of-boundary permit before applying for the program.
A percentage of spots will be filled by students attending Horizon Elementary, and the remainder will be filled by students attending other schools in Murray City School District. We will select students outside of Murray Schools if there are still open spots. Percentages are based on current enrollment and are typically 60/40 or 50/50 but may vary depending on the year. As always, siblings of students already attending the DLI program at Horizon will be given priority.
Parents will be notified of their children’s offer for placement into the program or on a waitlist by February 24, 2023.
You can find more information about the program on the Murray City School District website. You will find informational videos (English and Spanish versions available) and other helpful information regarding program details. If you have additional questions, a virtual Q&A meeting will be held for parents/guardians of current kindergarten students interested in the Spanish DLI Program. A virtual meeting was held Thursday, January 26, 2023 – here’s a link to the recorded video.
