GECDSB Adding 2 More F.I. Sites
- boundary changes affect 4 schools -
Continuing interest in French Immersion programming throughout the Greater Essex County District School Board has led to the creation of 2 additional dual-track (English/French Immersion) sites in Windsor.
Starting in September, 2018 Central Public School will be offering a Junior Kindergarten French Immersion program and Marlborough Public School will provide JK, Senior Kindergarten and Grade 1 French Immersion classes. Both new F.I. programs will add an additional grade each subsequent year and both schools will continue to have a JK-Grade 8 English program.
The expansion of F.I. programs is necessary because of capacity issues at Bellewood and Giles Campus French Immersion public schools. Adjustments have been made to the catchment area boundaries of both schools to relieve the enrolment pressure. Specific information has been shared with families and posted on the schools' websites.
Information meetings will be held Wednesday, April 18th at Marlborough PS starting at 6:00 p.m. and at Central P.S. on Thursday, April 19th at 6:00 p.m.
