PITTSVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- A central Wisconsin high school district is partnering with a Chinese school to teach the Chinese students a U.S. curriculum.

A News-Herald Media report says the partnership is between the Pittsville School District in Wood County and two schools in China.

Pittsville district administrator Terry Reynolds says about 400 Chinese students will begin studying toward a Pittsville High School diploma this fall.

The teachers will be employees of the Satellite Education Program. That's a cooperative project between U.S. school districts and the Chinese Ministry of Education in Beijing. However, the teachers will be certified by the state Department of Public Instruction, and they'll teach the Pittsville High School curriculum.

Officials say the goal is to help Wisconsin and Chinese students learn about each other's cultures and traditions.
