Board Approves Language Leaders

Tuesday, December 16, 2014 the Mount Airy City Schools Board of Education voted unanimously to implement Language Leaders, a Dual Language Immersion (DLI) program, at Tharrington Primary School. The purpose of the program will be to deepen the district’s K-12 STEAM initiative by providing an opportunity for students to think critically and innovatively solve problems in two languages. The vote continues a state-wide trend of districts adopting DLI. With over 70 programs in the state, North Carolina is considered one of the nation’s leaders in implementing DLI. 

Language Leaders will begin in the Fall of 2015 with the intent of adding one grade level per year. The district stressed that there will be limited seats available in the program and those interested must take a tour of Tharrington Primary School in order to be eligible. The registration window will open on February 9, 2015 and close at midnight on March 3, 2015. All interested applicants must be registered by midnight March 3, 2015 to be considered for the program. Once the registration window closes, all other applicants will be put on the wait list. 

The district will host an Early Decision Night on January 13, 2015 at 6:00PM at Tharrington Primary School where parents can sign up for special tours ahead of the registration window. Everyone else is invited to the Parent Information Session on February 9, 2015 at 6:00PM at Tharrington Primary School.
