Finding Sustainable Solutions to the Growth of French Immersion in LRSD

June 20, 2017

​Accommodating the growth of French Immersion in LRSD has involved important work over the past several years. Thanks to our recent journeys in several elementary schools, we are now able to set long-term plans to meet the growing demand for French Immersion. In January 2017, we shared our strategy to address the growing student enrolment in French Immersion with parents, students and staff through two community forums

Community feedback from the forums indicated an overwhelming support for the strategy. Parents in LRSD understand the aging infrastructure in our division and the need to grow our capacity to maintain the steady growth of French Immersion in our schools. We invite visitors to read through the Collège Jeanne-Sauvé and Collège Béliveau forum notes to review the community response in further detail.

In parallel with our ongoing efforts to consult our school communities, we’ve consulted and shared our strategy with various government officials: local MLAs, the minister, the deputy minister, assistant deputy ministers and the Public Schools Finance Board. All have expressed agreement in principle with the strategy, though so far government has not announced funding in support of the strategy. 

It is essential that we continue to work with both our community and the government to develop a sustainable plan that will not only address the current growth of French Immersion, but help build capacity for generations to come. 

To learn more, read our full updated report on finding sustainable solutions to the overcrowding in French Immersion in LRSD.
