Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools is requesting feedback on its recently released Dual Language report.

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools’ Board of Education has made second language instruction a district priority, which included a subsection that focused on the dual language program.

Redistricting and the construction of Elementary 11 could have significant impacts on the program, and therefore a team of school and district administrators reviewed the program, considered a wide range of possible options, and developed recommendations.

Recommendations include creating a magnet Spanish Dual Language school at the elementary level, phasing out the Chinese Dual Language Program due to issues with sustainability, and expanding the program in middle schools.

CHCCS will be collecting feedback through SIT meetings, public forums, electronic submissions and a survey.
