French programs are being reviewed board wide and the TDSB is looking for parent and teacher input – Throughout May, there are public forums being held at local schools. For dates, locations and an online survey check out the TDSB site HERE
The closest, upcoming forum is on Tuesday, May 15th from 7-9pm at Birchmount Park CI located at 3663 Danforth Ave.
More detail from the TDSB site:
“With over 90,000 students in Core French and another 28,000 students in French Immersion/Extended French programs come system successes and challenges. We are proud of the Board’s successes in retention rate, inclusion of students with special education needs as well as accessibility and transportation. At the same time, challenges include multiple entry points, equity of access, and transportation.
As part of the Director’s Response to the Enhanced Equity Task Force Report, a review of all French Programs will begin in Spring 2018. In collaboration with the TDSB Research Department, this review will focus on the current status of all French Programs, including the structure, content of the teaching and learning, and policies and procedures related to French. We look forward to receiving feedback about the successes and challenges of the various French Programs through face-to-face consultation with parents/guardians, Trustees, staff, students and community members and an online survey.”
