The San Jose Mercury News recently reported on yet another elementary school starting an SI program – San Jose’s Willow Glen Elementary. According the San Jose Mercury News, there are 201 immersion programs in California. Other new SI programs include Burlingame’s McKinley Elementary School which launched this school year, and Menlo Park which is launching its SI program at Encinal School in fall 2008.
This quote from the Willow Glen Extra:
“Willow Glen Elementary is exploring the opportunity of offering their entering kinder students the gift of bilingualism and biliteracy to incoming kinder students. If there is interest in this opportunity among the incoming kinder families, a two way immersion strand may begin at Willow Glen Elementary. “
