Parent Commitment Terms
For Mandarin Chinese Immersion Program

I am requesting that my child be enrolled in the Batesville Chinese Immersion Program. I understand that the enrollment of my child is conditional on my understanding of and commitment to the following:

  1. Research indicates an immersion program is most effective when students remain in the program for a sustained period of time. The student will be expected to continue the program until the fifth grade unless a team decision is made involving the parent and school staff that it is in the best interest of the student to have different placement.
  2. I understand that I will need to read to or with my child at home 20-30 minutes daily in English.
  3. There will also be homework in Chinese. I will commit to helping my child with their homework.
  4. I will give positive reinforcement to my child and teacher. I understand that it is not unusual for children in this program to experience some fatigue, tears, and frustration during the first months. Knowing this, I will not remove my child for this reason.
  5. I understand that fifty percent of my child’s instruction time will be in Mandarin Chinese.
  6. I understand that regular and punctual student attendance is required. I commit to having my child attend school regularly and on time.
  7. I understand that throughout the program pictures and videos of my child will be taken and used for educational and promotional purposes.
