The Simcoe County
District School Board (SCDSB) offers French Immersion (FI) at select schools
throughout Simcoe County beginning in Grade 1. The goal of the FI program is to
enable students to communicate in French with a high level of proficiency,
enabling them to function with ease in both French and English. Upon graduation
from the program, students will communicate in French with confidence in a wide
variety of real-life situations.
Information sessions take place in January for parents of students in Senior
Kindergarten. A letter will be sent home to those parents with more details.
Information session dates will be posted at www.scdsb.on.ca/secondary/program_options/French_as_a_second_language.
The FI online application form will be available from 9 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 21,
until 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2019 at www.scdsb.on.ca
under Elementary, French as a Second Language. While every effort is made to
accommodate all FI applications, available space and staffing will determine
how many students can be registered. Applications will be processed in the
order they are received electronically. Please contact the school if you do not
have Internet access at home or require assistance accessing the online
Please note that the host sites for FI may change during your child’s time in
the program, and your child may need to move schools. This may also include
splitting the program between two different sites.
