We got very reliable intelligence from the School Board that some sort of decision on language immersion will be made by Feb 9. NOW is the time to make those calls and send those email of support for immersion to School Board Members. Calling is preferable!! The only thing you have to say is that you want them to keep and/or expand language immersion programs. You can have your kids leave messages too!
Contact your School Board member immediately and let him/her know that language immersion should be expanded, not eliminated. Jane Strauss represents schools in the GFES pyramid. Email her at Jane.Strauss@fcps.edu AND call 571-423-1087.
Also call the at-large representatives:

Phone: 571-423-1090 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

January 30 (6pm at Jackson Middle School) is the next public hearing by the School Board on the budget. Please consider attending to show your support. Some GFES students are scheduled to speak. We welcome more students to support them by holding signs.
