French Program Reviewhttp://por.scdsb.on.ca/about-us/news/school-news/39French Program Review<p>​​​Following are the contents of a letter being distributed to all families at Hillcrest and Portage View public schools regarding an upcoming French Program Review.</p><p><br></p><p>The Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) introduced the French Immersion (FI) program, beginning with Grade 1, in September 2013. The FI program is one component of the SCDSB's French as a Second Language (FSL) program. At that time, the board identified which schools would offer the program to ensure fair access to students from across Simcoe County. In order to maintain this fair access, the program must be reviewed on a regular basis to help balance enrolment and to minimize impacts on home school student populations.</p><p>A Program Review (PR) has been approved by the SCDSB Board of Trustees for our school. A proposed option is splitting the FSL program, with some grades attending Hillcrest Public School and the others attending Portage View Public School. All students in the English program would continue to attend their home school.</p><p>This review is being conducted to ensure balanced enrolment at our schools. The results of the review would take effect in September 2017.</p><p><strong>We are hosting an information session to address parent questions and get feedback on the proposed changes.</strong></p><p><strong>Date: October 13, 2016</strong><br><strong>Time: 7 p.m.</strong><br><strong>Location: Portage View Public School</strong></p><p>Further information is included in the SCDSB's 2015-16 Capital Plan. You can view it online at <a href="http://www.scdsb.on.ca/">www.scdsb.on.ca</a>  under 'Board' and 'Capital Planning'. Click on the Capital Plan 2015-16 link.</p><p>I invite you to contact me at 705-734-6363 x11397 with any questions or comments you have.​​</p><p>Sincerely,</p><p>Stuart Finlayson<br>Superintendent of Education ​</p>
