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 will need to be considered in decision-making such as available space in schools, CBE planning principles, financial sustainability and more. There are also different strategies we can explore with you to ensure the long-term accessibility to the French Immersion Program in the area.
The schools 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 schools.
We would like to invite you to register for one of two sessions to learn more about the factors that need to be considered in making decisions and to share your thoughts on possibilities for the future. These sessions will be the first opportunities provided to parents to share their perspectives on this topic. We plan to provide additional opportunities (online and in-person) over the next several months before making any decisions.
