Spanish Immersion Program
Zilker Elementary will be accepting applications for the 2019-2020 Spanish Immersion program for incoming kindergarten students. The Spanish Immersion Program at Zilker is a language acquisition program in which the students spend half of their day immersed in the Spanish language. Students are taught math and science Spanish, and English language arts and social studies are taught in English. Our program follows the 50/50 Immersion Model.
The entry point into the program is Kindergarten. If you have an incoming kindergarten student, and currently live in the Zilker Elementary residential area, you may apply during the spring of 2019. To be eligible for the Spanish Immersion program, you must meet the following requirements:
You must reside in the Zilker Elementary attendance zone prior to the application process beginning.

There will be two parent information sessions offered for parents who meet the attendance zone requirements and are interested in applying for the Spanish Immersion program.
