Bellevue Spanish Immersion Program: A Handbook for Parents and Staff.
Bellevue Public Schools, WA.
The Bellevue (Washington) public schools' Spanish immersion program is described and program-related information is provided for parents. The description outlines general program goals and the basic educational assumptions underlying them, briefly chronicles the history of immersion education and of the Bellevue program, enumerates curriculum design features at each grade level (K-5), discusses parent involvement, and describes staffing and administrative policies, including those for teacher substitution, program location, visiting, student responsibility, student evaluation, transportation, and enrollment. A subsequent section offers guidelines to immersion students' parents in the form of commonly-asked questions and their answers. Recent and current research on immersion programs is reviewed briefly. A bibliography and a list of local parent resources are also included. (MSE)
