    The Fayette County Public School District’s 2020 STARTALK Chinese Summer Program will provide 50 instructional hours via a 2-week summer program for 104 district students in grades K-5 who are currently studying the Chinese language in district schools.
    Expected outcomes for our novice-mid through intermediate-low learners include 1) students will sustain and/or improve their language proficiency levels (novice – intermediate); 2) students will increase their intercultural communication including knowledge of products, practices, and perspectives through their experience with Chinese culture; and 3) student experiences will support further interest in the learning of Chinese throughout our district and continue to serve as a PR opportunity connecting parents and community members to our students and schools.
    The FCPS STARTALK program will result in an increase in the number of students studying Chinese throughout the secondary grades and eventually at the postsecondary level, strengthening the K – 16 pipeline, while also helping to increase the number of district programs. Participating students will develop a more sophisticated world view and appreciation for other cultures and meeting the district’s mission of creating a collaborative community that ensures all students achieve at high levels and graduate prepared to excel in a global society.
    The program will also engage parents in actively supporting the district’s Chinese language program, which may play a critical role in the district continuing to fund the offering of Chinese in future years.
