The Upper Grand District School Board is collecting information from parents/guardians about French as a second language Instruction, both Core and French Immersion courses, in our high schools as part of a board-wide review process. The results will be provided to the Board's Secondary French Review Committee, which was established to ensure the quality and sustainability of French as a second language (FSL) instruction.

French as a Second Language (FSL) at UGDSB

The Upper Grand District School Board strives to increase all students’ ability to communicate and interact with growing confidence and proficiency in French.

Our Board currently offers Core French and French Immersion at the high school level.  Extended French is not currently offered in UGDSB schools, but is a program of instruction that has been offered in past school years and is offered by other school boards.

DEFINITIONS
Core French
Students can take French as a subject from Grades 9 - 12. It is mandatory that students take one French credit for the Ontario Secondary School Diploma. In addition, a maximum of 2 credits in French can count towards compulsory credits.

French Immersion
French is the language of instruction in several courses. Students enrolled in this program must accumulate ten credits in French: four are for FIF (language) courses; six are for other subjects in which French is the language of instruction. If a student fulfills these requirements, the school grants a certificate in French Immersion.

Extended French
In the Extended French program at the secondary level, students accumulate a total of seven credits in which the language of instruction is French; four of these credits are for FEF (language) courses and three are for other subjects in which French is the language of instruction. If a student fulfills these requirements, the school grants a certificate in Extended French.

THIS ONLINE SURVEY WILL REMAIN OPEN UNTIL MARCH 10, 2017

The survey will take less than ten minutes to complete.  Please complete one survey per student in your household who is currently enrolled in a UGDSB secondary school.  There are no right or wrong answers. We want your honest opinions and input. Your answers will be confidential. Responses will be summarized in a report and form part of the Secondary French Review Committee's report that will be delivered to the Board in June 2017.
