FCPS Budget Task Force Recommends Cutting Immersion

FCPS is facing a $50-$70 million budget shortfall for the 2016-2017 school year.  To fill the gap, the FY 2017 Budget Task Force has recommended that it cut the language immersion programs to save $1.9 million (find the report here).  The JCC has formed a Committee to coordinate efforts to fight against these proposed cuts.  We will try our best to keep this page updated with information on our activities and how you can help.

On Monday, November 16 the Committee had its first meeting
