Bienvenue! We invite you and your grade 4 student to consider enrolling in the Near North District School Board’s Extended French program, which begins at the start of grade 5.
The Extended French program is a French-language learning option that is open and available to all students, including students with special needs and identified students. Student IEPs will outline the support necessary for student success.
Our Extended French program implements the following model:
- Grades 5 and 6 – 60% of grade-level programs and subjects are instructed in French.
- Grades 7 and 8 – 50% of the daily program are instructed in French
- Secondary school – a minimum of 4 Extended French courses taught in French.
To learn more about the program, please visit us online at https://www.nearnorthschools.ca/programs/fsl/extended-french/. We will also be hosting a virtual information session on June 4, 2020, at 6: 30 p.m., which you can access through our website. Our staff are looking forward to answering any questions you may have and introducing you to our Extended French program.
