Dual Language Magnet School Launches Website

The Frank Porter Graham Dual Language Magnet School has launched its new website.

Some of the website's features include news, how to apply to the dual language program, frequently asked questions, and an overview of the district's first magnet school.

The website also has videos from Bivins and all of the school's Planning Team and includes the numerous community events set up for families who are interested in applying to the dual language magnet school.  The website also has information for students currently enrolled at FPG Elementary who will be attending the school next year.

Opening in August 2013, the school will operate on the same traditional schedule as all of the other elementary schools in CHCCS.

Students attending the Dual Language Magnet School learn literacy and academic content in both English and Spanish.  The school's goal is for students to develop proficiency in being bilingual, bi-literate and cross-cultural.

"As the principal at Carrboro Elementary, I have become a huge advocate for dual language education in the past eight years, and I have seen first-hand the tremendous impact it has on preparing our students for success in our global society," said Emily Bivins, in-coming principal of the Frank Porter Graham Dual Language Magnet School.
