About This Project
The high level of interest in the French Immersion Program 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 Program in the area.
The schools initially identified to participate in the northwest and north central French Immersion Program engagement process include: Banff Trail, Branton, Georges P. Vanier, Hidden Valley, King George, Valley Creek and Varsity Acres. Other school communities may be identified to participate at later stages of the process.
We plan to provide additional opportunities (online and in-person) in the fall before making any decisions.
