Caldwell Heights Elementary School is accepting transfer students into the school’s Dual Language and International Baccalaureate (IB) School of Choice beginning in the 2016-2017 school year, as part of the Round Rock ISD Strategic Plan.
The programming aligns with two goals within the district’s Strategic Plan — Goal 1: We will implement, enhance and support innovative teachers and learning models; and Goal 3: We will provide open opportunities, staff training, communication and flexible programming to eliminate any disparities in expectations or achievement amongst our students.
“Caldwell Heights has experience in providing challenging and relevant programs for our students,” Caldwell Heights Principal Barbara Bergman said. “We are excited to welcome students to our Dual Language and IB School of Choice where we foster creative, global learners who identify problems and take action.”
Student transfers are now accepted to attend Caldwell Heights in August to participate in the programs. Pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and first-grade students who want to participate in a bilingual Spanish/English Dual Language program and students who are currently enrolled in a RRISD bilingual program are invited to apply to transfer.
Students that primarily speak English and are not currently enrolled in a Dual Language program must meet the program entry requirements for kindergarten and first grade. Pre-kindergarten students meeting bilingual program requirements are eligible to transfer.
Transportation for students residing outside the Caldwell Heights attendance zone will be provided.
Transfer applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications should select “other” as the reason and indicate “DL/IB School of Choice” in the comment section of the application form.
