Public Consultation: English and French as a Second Language (FSL) Programming 2015-2016
Process and timelines for community input now posted
June 7, 2016: At the June 1, 2016 Board meeting Trustees of the Halton District School Board received Report #16096 concerning program viability of elementary English and French Immersion programming. The report was presented to Trustees after nearly a year of extensive research and stakeholder consultation work by the Program Viability Committee (PVC).
The recommendation presented to Trustees states:
1. Be it resolved that the Halton District School Board adopt Option 6, Grade 2 Entry to the French Immersion program at 100% intensity in existing single and dual track schools, as outlined in Report 16096.
2. Be it resolved that this model begin in Grade 2 of school year 2018/19. Entry into Grade 1 of our current FI model will cease after the 2016/17 school year and the 2017/18 Grade 1 cohort will be English program only.
3. Be it resolved that students enrolled in our current FI model be ‘grandparented’ and allowed to complete elementary school in the current model.
Trustees will hear from stakeholders at a Special Delegation Night scheduled for. The list of the 10 delegations will be posted on the board website under “Boardroom and Trustees” on .
I would welcome any input that the parents & teachers in your school might have regarding the recommendation that is currently before the board.
I can be contacted best through email email@example.com.
