  • John M. Clayton and East Millsboro elementary schools will host a series of open houses for their Spanish immersion programs on April 14 and 16.

    The Spanish immersion program gives young learners the opportunity to acquire a second language in a developmentally-appropriate format. Students will spend half of each school day learning in English and the other half of the day learning in Spanish. The program is offered to all students entering the Indian River School District in 2014-2015. Parents who are interested in having their child considered for the class must complete and submit a School Choice application by May 16.
