FARMINGTON – Davis School District will add language immersion programs at two elementary schools starting in the fall of 2014.
Lincoln Elementary in Layton will offer a two-way Spanish program and the new school now under construction in Woods Cross will offer French immersion.
With the two schools, Davis will offer language immersion in 11 of its 60 elementary schools, according to Rita Stevenson, who oversees the programs in the district.
Four schools offer Chinese immersion, three have French studies and four have Spanish programs.
The program at Lincoln is unique in that it will “serve English students who are learning Spanish as well as students who already speak Spanish in their homes,” said Stevenson in an email.
“It is a win-win situation for all students in the immersion class,” she said.
Because students now attending Foxboro are in the boundaries of the Woods Cross school, “it makes sense,” said Stevenson, to have the program continue at the new school.
“Both of the new immersion programs will likely accept a few students who are living outside of the school boundaries,” said Stevenson. Interested parents can contact the school or get more information from her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
