The Public Information Sessions for Springfield Area high school students interested in applying for the Sister Cities Association of Springfield (SCAS) student exchange in Ashikaga, Japan will be held on Monday, January 25 and Monday, February 8. Each session will be at 7:00 PM in the Board Room of the Springfield District 186 Administrative Center, 1900 West Monroe Street, Springfield, IL 62704 (next to Grant Middle School, across from Fairhills Mall).

Interested students and their parents are encouraged to attend one of the sessions, if possible. Applications for the June 17-27, 2016 delegation will be available at the sessions.
