Tredyffrin Easttown School District’s FLES (Foreign Language in Elementary School) – Budget Cut?

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.
