RATIONALE/PURPOSE

French Immersion programming provides the opportunity for students in the school district to become bilingual in both of Canada's official languages, English and French.

 

POLICY

The Board of Education believes that students should have the opportunity to receive instruction in the French language through French Immersion programs in elementary, middle, and secondary grades. The French Immersion program operates as an optional district operated and managed program. The French Immersion Program is not intended to be a selective program. It is in students' best interests that classes include students with a variety of aptitudes, cultures, and backgrounds. The Board believes that French Immersion instruction should be available to all students who desire to be enrolled in the program providing staffing requirements can be accommodated.
