    How to Apply

    Updated January 14, 2020

    Portland Public Schools offers Dual Language Immersion (DLI) programs in Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, Russian and Japanese.

    Interested in having your child participate in a Dual Language Immersion program? The Enrollment and Transfer Center manages the application process.

    Entry at Kindergarten:
    Students entering Kindergarten must apply through the School Choice Lottery at www.pps.net/schoolchoice, attend an informational meeting at any dual language immersion school or central office and sign a Statement of Understanding. If slots are still open after the lottery closes, DLI programs may continue to receive kindergarten applications. The lottery typically takes place in February/March of each year with results in late April. Please see the Enrollment and Transfer Center website for more informaion: www.pps.net/schoolchoice.

    The informational meetings take place at schools between February and May and can be found on the Connect to Kindergarten page. Attending any of these meetings fulfills the meeting requirement.

    Late Entry (Grades 1-12):
    At grade levels beyond kindergarten, families must submit a petition transfer request. In order for petitions to be approved, space must be available at the specific grade level and school. If space is identified, partner language learners must pass a language proficiency assessment demonstrating that they are on grade level in reading, writing, speaking and listening in the partner language. Assessments for Late Entry are conducted in June, as well as right before school starts.

    You can apply and find out more about the application process on the School Lottery website.
