A Mandarin-language immersion program for the Menlo Park City School District will be one of the topics on the agenda when the school board meets at 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 21, in the Teacher Educational Resource Center at the district's office, 181 Encinal Ave. in Atherton.
For at least a year, district parents have been asking the board to consider a Mandarin-immersion program, similar to the district's Spanish-immersion program, in which children have at least half their classes in a second language.
The request for a Mandarin-immersion program will be part of a broader discussion about foreign language programs in the district.
Also on the agenda for Wednesday night are discussions about the need for more administrators at school district sites as student population grows, and an update on the new school on the O'Conner School site.
