On June 7, 2012, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board of Education approved a plan to convert Frank Porter Graham (FPG) Elementary into a Spanish/English Dual Language Magnet School.
The first phase of the plan will begin in the 2012-13 school year.
During the 2012-13 school year, FPG will enroll two Dual Language
kindergarten classrooms and two first grade Dual Language classrooms.
Selection into the kindergarten and first grade Dual Language classrooms
will give preference to students currently assigned to FPG. For
2012-13, limited spaces will remain after preference is given to rising
kindergarten and rising first grade FPG students. The remaining spaces
will be opened to all rising kindergarten and rising first grade Chapel
Hill-Carrboro City Schools students.
Applications for the Dual Language magnet school are due by 1:30pm on
July 13, 2012. Applications are available by visiting the district
website, the Dual Language office or Registration office located at
Lincoln Center, 750 South Merritt Mill Road, Chapel Hill NC 27516.
During the 2012-13 school year, FPG will continue to have one Dual
Language classroom in second through fifth grades. The district will
maintain the Spanish Dual Language program at Carrboro Elementary. The
Spanish Dual Language program at Carrboro Elementary will be converted
to a magnet model in 2013-14. For the 2012-13 school year, the district
will maintain the Spanish Dual Language program at Scroggs Elementary.
FPG will be converted into a full district magnet school beginning
with the 2013-14 school year. For the 2013-14 school year, all rising
kindergarten students from the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools will be
