Some Students at Mansfield ISD schools could soon be learning Arabic as a required language.¬† The school district wants students at select schools to take Arabic language and culture classes as part of a federally funded grant.
The Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education.
As part of the five-year $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would be mandatory at Cross Timbers Intermediate School and Kenneth Davis Elementary School.¬† The program would also be optional for students at T. A. Howard Middle School and Summit High School.
