About the Programs

Program Offerings

The Immersion program is offered in Spanish and Mandarin for students in grades TK-8. The district's Immersion program is open to non English-speaking and English-speaking students. In these programs, all students develop literacy in the target language first with the gradual addition of English. Students in the Immersion program are taught using the same California State Standards as all other students in the district.

Eligibility

The Immersion program is open to students enrolled in FUSD through an application process. All students are eligible to enter the Immersion program in kindergarten and first grade. Students who wish to enter Immersion in grades 2-8 must demonstrate fluency and literacy skills in English and the target language in order to be eligible for enrollment. All Immersion enrollment is dependent upon space.

Locations

In 2022-23, the Mandarin Immersion Program (MIP) will unify at Lila Bringhurst Elementary as that school opens to serve its home attendance area students, and the Spanish Dual Immersion (SDI) program will unify at Blacow Elementary.
