Enrollment Working Group Survey

Published on November 3, 2017 by Farah Ameen Community News

Dear Crocker Farm Families,

A subgroup of the Enrollment Working Group—a group of parents, teachers, administrators, and community members that is in the process of researching educational options for the Amherst Public School district—is exploring world language opportunities for our students, with a focus on the potential for our district to start a K-6 magnet school.

Based on the perception of ongoing interest by the community and  current demographics of ELL (English Language Learners) students and bilingual staff, the EWG is interested in determining the feasibility of creating a English/Spanish K-6 dual immersion program (a dual language school teaches subjects in English and Spanish, with the goal of all students learning both languages). The goals for this survey are to:

  • Assess interest in a K-6 dual immersion magnet school option by English-speaking and Spanish-speaking families
  • Assess interest in other magnet school themes
  • Assess interest in expanded Spanish language instruction as part of regular (non-dual immersion) K-6 programming.

Please take a moment before November 14 to complete the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GFG7JNX to share your thoughts and opinions.

Thank you for your time,


The Magnet/Dual-Immersion Subgroup of the Enrollment Working Group
