Calling families from the San Francisco Bay Area!

位育國際學校Wei Yu International Charter School is a K-8 Mandarin immersion public tuition-free charter school that is currently petitioning for approval to open grades K and 1st in Fall 2015 in West San Jose. The Wei Yu petition was denied at the district level a few weeks ago.

The founding team wants to assure you that this does not reflect on the quality of our program. There were a lot of areas in the district report that were inaccurate so we have submitted an appeal with the Santa Clara County board. If you haven’t had a chance to review our rebuttal letter or letters of support, we encourage you to review them on our website here: http://www.weiyucharter.org/resources.html

The public hearing for our appeal is this Wednesday, December 10th at approximately 6 pm at the Santa Clara County Office of Education (1290 Ridder Park Dr, SJ). We urgently need families who want Mandarin immersion in the South Bay to attend the hearing. We can’t stress enough how critical your presence will be to show the board how much community support there is for the school. We realize how busy all of you are so we thank you in advance for considering it!

if you or anyone you know will have a child in K or 1st next fall and would like to enroll your child at Wei Yu if we are approved, please send me an email at felicity.miao@gmail.com. Every additional signature we get strengthens our case and shows the board that there is demand for our school.

Please spread the word about this with your friends, family, and other Wei Yu supporters. We truly believe that Wei Yu will be an opportunity to enable all students, regardless of ethnic background, socio-economic status, or heritage language, to become bilingual and bi-literate in both Mandarin and English.
