The Lafayette Parish School System announced Friday that some foreign immersion programs at Alice Boucher and S.J. Montgomery Elementary schools will move to other schools in the coming school year.

Chinese immersion classes offered at Boucher will move to Plantation Elementary and French immersion offered at S.J. Montgomery will move to Myrtle Place Elementary, which is an existing French immersion school, school officials said Friday.

The immersion options are offered as part of the district’s schools of choice programs which offer students the opportunity to choose a specialized study area. Options range from foreign language immersion to business and finance and environmental sciences. French immersion is the district’s largest schools of choice option and classes are offered at several schools across the parish. Boucher was the only site of the Chinese immersion option.
