The Upper Grand District School Board has passed a motion to change their process for French Immersion Registration and Selection.
Staff have been directed to develop and create a new and fair transparent method for student entry into the French Immersion Programs.
Junior Kindergarten will now be the only entry point for French Immersion.
Parents will also have to select whether their child will learn through the English or French Track.
The new process also adds a new JK enrolment cap, and if that cap has been exceeded, a school based random selection will be initiated. That selection will be monitored by a third party. Siblings of students already enrolled in French Immersion will be given priority
The changes take affect at the beginning of the next school year in 2017-18, with the enrolment window running from January 9th to January 26th.
