The McKinney Independent School District is moving into its fourth year of Dual Language implementation. The program is currently offered at Caldwell Elementary in grades K-2. The program will move into grade 3 at Caldwell for the 2013-14 school year.

Caldwell zoned students will receive priority enrollment. Transfer students will be selected through a lottery system. Transportation is only provided to Caldwell zoned students who qualify for the service. Spanish speaking students zoned for other campuses may apply for open seats through the Transfer Process.

Older siblings in grades 4-5, may attend Caldwell if space allows (a standard school transfer form must be filled our once a student's name is drawn in the lottery).

There will be two-way dual language parent informational meetings held on March 19 (9:30 a.m.) and March 21 (6 p.m.) at Caldwell Library.

Deadline to enter is Monday, March 25.
