FSL Programs Review Draft Recommendations

Public Feedback Opportunity on Draft FSL Review Recommendations

The Durham District School Board (DDSB) conducted a review of French as a Second Language (FSL) Programming throughout last year. A draft report and recommendations were presented to the Board of Trustees on January 4, 2021.

The draft report incorporated research into FSL programming, feedback received through public consultations and considered operational pressures in order to provide draft recommendations. The goal of the review is to ensure that as an English language school board, we can provide sustainable and quality FSL programming across the District, while ensuring the viability of English programming at dual track schools.

In order to ensure that community members have a final opportunity to share feedback on the draft report’s recommendations, the DDSB is seeking additional public feedback between January 8 and 18, 2021 that can be sent to fsl@ddsb.ca.

The major themes from this additional feedback will be considered by staff and shared with Trustees at an upcoming meeting of the Board of Trustees. The recommendations contained in the draft report can be found on pages 25 to 32 of the draft report.
