Study adding Spanish at kindergarten level

Kindergartners in Dover and Sherborn will be learning Spanish in their classrooms next September if a plan first initiated by passionate parents four years ago is passed by the local school boards.

The Elementary World Language Committee will take its proposal before the Dover and Sherborn school committees on Dec. 11. The plan calls for integrating Spanish into the kindergarten curriculum for 20 minutes four days a week during the next school year, and then expanding it over the following five years to include a half-hour of Spanish instruction in grades 1 through 5.
