How to Enroll

IF YOU are a current dual language student:

  • Fifth and sixth-grade students currently enrolled in dual language will be automatically enrolled in the dual language program at their feeder pattern middle school in 2019.
  • Seventh-grade students currently enrolled in the dual language program at Cascade Middle School will remain in the dual language program at Cascade for eighth grade.
  • Eighth-grade students currently enrolled in dual language at Cascade will be automatically enrolled in the dual language program at Evergreen High School.
  • If you do not want to be automatically enrolled or have questions about dual language enrollment, please contact Language Learning at 206-631-3035.

IF YOU LIVE IN THE SERVICE AREA OF A DUAL LANGUAGE SCHOOL: 

  • New students and students from the elementary feeder schools for these programs who have the necessary language skills may be assessed and offered placement in the dual language program as space is available.

if you don't live in a service area of a dual language school:

  • Students who have the necessary language skills may complete and return an In-District Transfer form to request enrollment in the dual language program.
  • Students must be assessed to determine if they qualify.
  • If space is available, a dual language school will contact you. 
  • Transportation to the dual language school will not be provided.

In the fall of 2019, new school boundaries and feeder patterns will take effect. Some students in dual language programs may be affected by those changes. If there is no dual language program at a student’s new school in the grade level needed, the student may continue attending their current school and remain in the dual language program.

We recognize your current situation may not fit one of these scenarios. If this is the case, or if you have additional questions, please contact your child’s school or the Language Learning Department at 206-631-3035.

As dual language programs develop, the enrollment process may change.
