2019-2020 Kindergarten Acceptances to Dual Language Programs and Wait Lists

  • The first round of Dual Language Offers (to CCUSD residents) to El Marino and La Ballona were mailed on April 29. Responses are due May 13. 
  • The Japanese Immersion Program at El Marino will be at capacity (if everyone accepts offers and gets their permits).
  • The week of May 20, wait List letters were mailed to all Culver City residents who were not offered a space in the Dual Language Programs at El Marino Language School. To date, no one on the Wait List has been offered a space.
  • Since no space is available in the Dual Language Programs at El Marino and La Ballona for permit applicants (except those who passed the Spanish Proficiency Exam), a Wait List was not established. Permit applicants should list their preferences on the CCUSD Interdistrict Attendance Application.

CCUSD Dual Language Programs offer a unique opportunity of learning for our community. Dual Language programs place English-speaking and target language-speaking students together in a classroom where both languages are valued and used for instruction.

El Programa de Dos Idiomas (inglés y español) de El Marino y La Ballona ofrece la oportunidad única a nuestra comunidad de aprender. El programa pone a nuestros estudiantes que hablan inglés y español juntos en un salón de clases donde los dos idiomas son valorados y usados en la instrucción.

  • Japanese Immersion Program (JIP) in grades Kindergarten through Grade 5;
  • Spanish Immersion Program (SIP) in grades Kindergarten through Grade 5.

La Ballona Elementary School offers:

  • Spanish Dual Language Program in grades Kindergarten through Grade 5.
