The following message from CAIS Chinese Program Director Kevin Chang was sent to the CAIS community on Friday, April 27, 2012
Dear CAIS Families,
After numerous discussions with our Chinese faculty and feedback from our February 7 community meeting, we have developed a plan for transitioning to an emphasis on simplified Chinese characters beginning in the 2012-13 school year. I am positive that this plan is mindful of tradition while embracing the future. Above all, we are confident that it addresses the needs of our children's futures.

Thank you to everyone who provided input and feedback at the meeting, by email and in dozens of conversations.
