SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Parents, students and community members have three chances to learn more about RH Dana Elementary School’s Spanish Dual Immersion Program through a series of informational meetings.
Under the language immersion instruction, students would be taught in English 50 percent of the time and in Spanish the other 50 percent. The transition will be introduced in the 2019-2020 school year, starting with the kindergarten class, which will carry the program through each subsequent grade level. The Capistrano Unified School District Board of Trustees approved the transition on Dec. 14.
RH Dana will host a series of informational meetings regarding the program on Wednesday, Jan. 9, as well as Jan. 16 at 9 a.m. and on Jan. 17 at 6 p.m. If you are unable to attend a meeting, call 949.496.5784 to set up a time to walk the campus and learn more about the program.
