Language Immersion Arrives in Central Point
"Immersion" programs in schools do not involve throwing students in actual water.
But they do end up in a pool of students who speak either English or another language, and the class is taught in both languages.
Language immersion programs are fairly common, but brand new in the Central Point school district.
Jewett Elementary is home to a first-grade class taught primarily in Spanish, with a mix of English- and Spanish-speaking children.
Jewett Principal Tom Rambo explains the benefits.
