Hearing on Mandarin immersion charter school in Menlo Park, Calif. tonight.
Wednesday hearing on Mandarin immersion charter school
by Barbara Wood / Almanac
The public will have another chance to comment about the Mandarin immersion charter school proposed for the Menlo Park City School District when the San Mateo County Board of Education holds a public hearing on Wednesday, Jan. 7. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the San Mateo County Office of Education at 101 Twin Dolphin Drive in Redwood City.
Backers of the proposed Menlo Mandarin Immersion Charter School appealed to the county board following the district’s November decision to deny their petition to start a new charter school within the district.
After a presentation by the board’s attorney, Claire Cunningham, the board will hear a 20-minute presentation from backers of the charter school and then a 20-minute presentation by the school district. After questions from the board, members of the public will be allowed to speak for a maximum of two minutes each.
