There is a T/E School Board meeting tonight at 7:30 PM. One of the major discussions tonight will be the possible elimination of the FLES (Foreign Language in Elementary School) program. Many T/E parents strongly support the continuance of foreign language learning at the elementary school level. They believe that the T/E middle school foreign language program is accelerated compared to other school districts as a result of FLES. An online petition opposing the elimination of FLES has had 571 signatures since November 12 – click here for the petition. Will the supporters of FLES prevail? Stay tuned.
I’m hearing that our proposed school tax increase may be as high as 7.2%. Let’s hope that this isn’t so — let me do some further checking.
