Dual Immersion Meetings to Take Place Thursday, Throughout Feb.

School district officials and parents with Casper Dual Immersion will hold a series of informational meetings over the next four weeks to gauge interest in a possible dual-language immersion pilot curriculum for kindergartners and first-graders attending Natrona County schools.

If the program is given funding approval by the Natrona County School District Board of Trustees, parents will have the option to elect their child into a dual-language immersion curriculum, where they will learn in either Spanish or Mandarin Chinese during half of their school day.

Natrona County School District associate superintendent of curriculum and instruction Mark Mathern says the meetings are set up to introduce the DLI concept to interested parents.

“At these dual-language meetings, we’ll have some parent representatives who will present a series of slides and discussion points about we know about dual-language concepts and what we know about the results,” Mathern said.

The first meeting will take place Thursday at 7:00 p.m. at the Natrona County School District’s central services building.

Additional meetings will take place Feb. 7 at 6:00 p.m., Feb. 14 at noon and Feb. 21 at 7:00 p.m. Refreshments will be served during the Feb. 7 and Feb. 14 meetings.

Additional information can be found at the Casper Dual Immersion blog and at the Natrona County School District’s website.
