Splash Language Immersion
Splash programs provide a comprehensive package to develop and maintain consistent, high-quality K-8 world language programs in North Carolina. In a Splash dual language immersion classroom, VIF provides teachers with tools to promote academic achievement through enrichment rather than remediation.
Students, in turn, excel in their core studies while becoming bilingual and culturally aware. All Splash teachers receive support and ongoing training, and can join an online community of educators in the VIF learning center, where they have access to Global Gateway professional development and a robust library of curricular tools and classroom resources.
Information sessions for parents interested in registering their child for a Splash Class have been scheduled and are listed below:
All Splash parent information sessions cover the same content. If you can't make one session please feel free to attend any of the other Spanish or Mandarin sessions listed.
