Community Engagement

​Long-Term Strategy for the Northwest and North Central French Immersion Programs

 

About This Project

The high level of interest in the Early and Late French Immersion Programs in northwest and north central Calgary has resulted in some schools being at or over-capacity, which may limit continued growth at these locations. The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) is committed to providing strong learning opportunities to all our French Immersion students and working with families to explore possibilities for the future. There are many factors that are considered in decision-making such as CBE values and planning principles, available space in schools, financial sustainability, government legislation and more. There are also different strategies we can explore to ensure long-term accessibility to the French Immersion Programs in the area.

The schools initially identified to participate in the northwest and north central French Immersion Programs engagement process include: Banff Trail, Branton, Georges P. Vanier, Hidden Valley, King George, Valley Creek and Varsity Acres. Four additional schools have been identified to participate in the engagement process: Eric Harvie, F. E. Osborne, Tuscany and Twelve Mile Coulee. Other school communities may be identified to participate at later stages of the process.

Where We Are In The Engagement Process

As per the engagement timeline on page 9 of the Northwest and North Central French Immersion Programs Engagement Roadmap, we are beginning the third phase of the engagement process:

  • Phase 3: Proposed Plans (Sept. - Nov. 2018)

    • Review input and feedback gathered on scenarios

    • Develop proposed plans

    • Share proposed plans online

    • Host an open house and online opportunity to gather input and feedback on proposed plans from staff, parents, students and community members

  • Decision(s) (Nov. - Dec. 2018)

    • Review input and feedback gathered on proposed plans

    • Make decision(s)

    • Share decision(s) with staff, parents, students and community members

    • Identify timing for implementation

    • Share how input and feedback influenced the decision(s)

Proposed plans will be posted by end of day November 6, 2018.
