French Immersion registration will take place from January 17 - February 14, 2014
Information sessions for the French Immersion (FI) program will take place at French Immersion schools
on January 16, 2014 at 7 p.m. FI registration will begin January 17, 2014. In order to streamline the registration process, parents or guardians of Senior Kindergarten students entering Grade 1 in 2014, and wishing to enrol in the FI Program, can visit or call the school office and request an Office Index Card - short version. T
he Office Index Card must be signed by the principal of the home school.Parents or guardians then
take this form, along with one piece of identification showing their address to your designated French Immersion school
to register between January 17 and February 14, 2014. This eliminates the need to provide duplicate enrollment information or to pre-register.
Families registering students who do not currently attend a YRDSB school will need to complete full registration paperwork at their designated FI school.
YRDSB’s FI Accommodation Plan provides long-term consistency and equity of access to all students in York Region and will enable YRDSB to
continue to offer the FI program to all who wish to enrol. The FI program will be offered in
Dual Track or Single Track settings, in a variety of configurations. In order to meet community needs and optimize available space in our schools, a community's Grade 1-8 FI program may be provided over more than one school during the course of a student's FI education.This will allow flexibility in addressing community needs and the opportunity to use existing space in schools. Please note: Some of the FI accommodation plans will require facility modifications or the development of new schools and will require short-term transition plans that might include overflow while we work toward the long-term vision. Overflow refers to situations in which the Board directs students to attend a school other than their community school or optional program for a specific period of time, as defined in Policy #108
