As Natrona County school officials craft a policy to approve future dual-language immersion programs, a group of local parents is revamping its efforts to advocate for a second such program in Casper.
CASPER, Wyo. -- The Natrona County School District board of trustees voted unanimously Monday night to postpone a decision on whether to continue funding a Chinese dual-language immersion pilot program at a Casper elementary school, though trustees agreed support for the program was strong.
CASPER, Wyo. — Forty-four kindergartners will be able to spend half the day learning in Mandarin Chinese at Paradise Valley Elementary school beginning this fall — provided several conditions are met.
Advocates of allowing Natrona County School District students to learn in a foreign language for part of the day say they have found enough interested parents and educators to go ahead with the program.
