Utah Dual language Immersion (DLI) is a state supported program in which students spend half the day in English with one teacher and half the day with another teacher in a second language. Park City School District offers programs with Spanish and French as second languages. The mission of Dual Immersion is to prepare linguistically and culturally competent students who can successfully compete in a complex global economy.
In today’s world, where increased conversations about globalization permeate discussions across all industry sectors, dual language immersion education is taking center stage as the most effective and efficient program for preparing linguistically and culturally competent students who can successfully compete in a complex global economy.
The classroom teacher assesses students in the DLI program and proficiency reports are provided to parents with feedback on their child’s progress in the language twice a year. All DLI students participate in all state standardized tests in English. They also participate in a nationally normed language evaluation called the AAPPL test.

Below you will find the powerpoint presentation and handouts from the New Parent Orientation that was held on August 27th. The handout lists practical tips for supporting positive language learning behaviors and general language enhancing activities.
This council consists of parent representatives active in their school PTA and parents of students in the DLI programs. The parents were nominated by their school principal and by other parents in the DLI program to participate on this council. As an advisory council, they represent the constituents at each site by contributing information, conducting surveys, sharing ideas district wide and raising concerns to the district coordinator. Monthly minutes will be publicized on this site from each meeting and parents are encouraged to contact their parent representative with concerns regarding the program.
Parents who are not representatives are welcome to schedule a time to present at the council meeting by contacting Kathy Einhorn, email@example.com.
If you would like to volunteer in the DLI program, please contact Kathy Einhorn if you are not a parent. Parents should contact the DLI Parent Advisory Representative from your school for more information and opportunities.
