China Bilingual Announces Strategic Changes to Two Schools in Shanxi Province
TAIYUAN, China, May 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Bilingual Technology & Education Group Inc. (OTCBB: CBLY) ("China Bilingual" or the "Company"), an education company that owns and operates high-quality, K-12 private boarding schools in China, today announced that it will relocate its students between two schools in Taiyuan, Shanxi province on September 1, 2012 to better service its student population and expand its enrollment capability.
Starting next academic year, China Bilingual will relocate all primary grade students to Shanxi Modern Bilingual School – North Campus and all secondary grade students to Shanxi Modern Bilingual School – South Campus (formerly known as Shanxi Rising School, which was acquired by China Bilingual in August 2011).
"This will be another milestone in our efforts to integrate our two schools to better serve our students in the Taiyuan area," stated Dr. Ren Zhiqing, Chairman and CEO of China Bilingual. "The relocation of students will reduce internal competition between the two schools in attracting high quality students and enable us to focus on further improving our quality of education and curriculum. In addition, this new division of schools will allow us to better allocate our strong faculty and improve the efficiency of our personnel management and administration. We expect this initiative will be another driver of enrollment growth in the coming academic year."
