School district to consider replacing bilingual education

The Orange Unified school board is slated tonight to consider a proposal for a state waiver to replace the district’s bilingual education program.

The proposal would replace the bilingual program with an English Fluency Plan including a two-year transition, special tutoring and English immersion.

In other business, the board will hear information on the creation of a possible charter school at Jordan Elementary in Orange, as well as a staff report on building another new elementary school in Anaheim Hills in addition to Canyon Rim Elementary which opens July 21.

The board is also scheduled to hold a budget workshop on facilities planning and technology at 6 p.m. before the regular meeting and a reception at 7 p.m. for local winners of the PTA’s Reflections art contest.

The regular meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. in the board room at the District Education Center, 1401 N. Handy St., Orange. Orange Unified serves public school students in Orange, Villa Park and Anaheim Hills.
