Dual Language Lottery Procedures

  • In order to meet the needs of diverse learners in the district, the Dual Language (DL) program will strive to fill DL classrooms with this breakdown:

    • ½ heritage English students

    • ½ heritage Spanish students

    As the District 26 Dual Language program is a two-teacher program, we have two DL sections per grade level, which includes Kindergarten. Per the Illinois School Code, spots are reserved for identified English Learners (EL) and class sizes will compare to district averages.

    The following two requirements must be fulfilled in order for non-EL students to be considered for participation in the lottery and acceptance into the Dual Language program.

    • Attend one of the Dual Language Informational sessions 

      • Thursday, February 16th from 5:00-6:00 pm at Three Oaks (enter through Door 2)

      • Thursday, February 21st from 5:00-6:00 pm at Three Oaks (enter through Door 2)

      • Tuesday, February 28th from 5:00-6:00 pm Three Oaks (enter through Door 2)

    All families MUST submit the Dual Language Application AND District 26 Kindergarten registration prior to the deadline. The deadline to submit is Friday, May 12th
