How do students get support to learn the second language?
As part of the Gomez & Gomez model, language immersion leads to language acquisition. Students are immersed in academic and social language acquisition situations while learning math, science, social studies, and language arts. In addition, students are immersed in social language acquisition by following the language of the day; i.e. English or Spanish.
Is transportation provided?
Yes. Parents / Guardians may choose to provide transportation or students are offered shuttle bus transportation from the student's home campus to Deer Creek Elementary. The parent / guardian is responsible for securing transportation to and from the home campus unless the student qualifies for a CISD bus route from the home campus to the neighborhood bus stop.
