French as a Second Language Program Review
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 took place in Spring 2018. In collaboration with the TDSB Research Department, this review focussed 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 received significant 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.
