French as a Second Language Review
November 29, 2011Posted by on
We have been asked to share the following information with you from the board:
French as a Second Language Program Review Online Survey– We want to hear from you!
The York Region District School Board is conducting a comprehensive review of its French as a Second Language (FSL) Program. The goal of the review is to ensure that the Board can continue to provide high quality and sustainable FSL instruction. York Region offers French as a Second Language instruction through two delivery models, Core and Immersion. Core French is what most students experience.
It begins in Grade 4 and is offered as a subject, as part of the regular Ontario Curriculum. French Immersion is a specialized optional program which begins in Grade 1. In French Immersion subjects in the Ontario Curriculum are predominantly taught in French.
As part of this review, the Board has engaged Ipsos Reid to assist with gathering public input. We are asking all parents to fill out an online survey to tell us what they think about FSL. The survey will be available on the Board’s website: www.yrdsb.edu.on.ca, starting Friday, December 16, 2011 at 9:00 a.m., and will close on Monday, January 16, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. All answers to the survey will be kept strictly confidential; survey answers will be limited to one per household. The review includes a public input process and an examination of best practices from other public education jurisdictions.
