    BKSCA, Brea Korean Sister City Association, started the campaign to establish Korean class at Brea Olinda High School. On Dec. 1, BKSCA members introduced their campaign and received signatures needed for the petition at seminar held at Brea Community room.

      Nancy Lee, president of BKSCA, will formally petition of the establishment of Korean class at BOHS by March the latest.

        “There are an increasing number of Brea citizens of Korean heritage. Also, Brea City Hall wants to have an opportunity to communicate with people of Korean heritage in Brea through BKSCA,” Lee said.

          Carrie Flanders, Board of Education in BOUSD, stated during seminar, “There is no reason to reject the establishment of Korean class if financial problems are solved. It will contribute to the diversity of our community.”

            Regarding the diversity, participants of seminar shared their hope to establish Korean class, as Japanese class is already established despite less number of students of Japanese heritage.

              Aside from the petition, during the seminar, Kelly Kennedy, principal of Brea Junior High School, explained about educational environment and curriculum of Brea. In addition, JNJ admission shared their information on admission to college especially for high school students. You can contact 714-222-9955 for more information.
