Lincoln Elementary will begin a dual language program for the 2011-2012 with kinder and 1st grade classes. There has been overwhelming interest in this new program and the district is currently accepting enrollments. Interested families should enroll as soon as possible, as spaces are limited.
A dual language program is an educational model that integrates native English speakers and native speakers of a target language for the entire school day, with the goals of promoting high academic achievement, first and second language development, and cross-cultural understanding for all students. Lincoln Elementary School will follow the 90:10 model of dual language instruction with Spanish as the target language.
Students that are currently enrolled in kinder or 1st grade at Lincoln, must fill out a commitment form which can be obtained and submitted at the SCESD office 840 S. Main St., Salinas, CA 93901, (831) 784-2214.
Students that are within the Salinas City Elementary School District, must first apply for an intra-district transfer at the district office 840 S. Main St., Salinas, CA 93901, (831) 784-2214 and fill out the commitment form which can be obtained and submitted to the SCESD office.
Students that are outside the SCESD, must first apply for the inter-district transfer at their home district and fill out the commitment form which can be obtained and submitted at the SCESD office 840 S. Main St., Salinas, CA 93901, (831) 784-2214.
