Special thanks to:

The list of 31 programs was compiled from a provisional list from the West Michigan Alliance of Immersion Educators, which was then verified and updated by Emily Hunsberger. The data about the type of program and the percentage of the building in immersion were compiled by Emily Hunsberger via individual contact with each school.
