If parents don?t want their child in Tucson Unified School District bilingual education programs, they must:
- Check “no” to this question on the district?s registration form: “If bilingual and/or English as a second language instruction is recommended, I want my son/daughter to participate.”
- Write a letter to the school principal, asking that the child be placed in non-bilingual programs.
- The principal, along with district officials, will schedule a conference with the parents to discuss the merits of bilingual education.
- If parents still choose against bilingual education, the child will be placed in mainstream classes.
