 Register for Extended French by Jan. 31, 2015

 Are you thinking of registering your child for Extended French (EF)? For the 2014-15 school year, parents must register children for entry into grade 7 Extended French by 4 p.m. onFriday, January 31, 2015.

The registration date will help determine the number of grade 7 Extended French classes at each school for the following September. The board can then hire the appropriate number of qualified staff. As well, because the registration date happens earlier, the intention is that no new EF classes will be created at reorganization time in September, so the level of student disruption will be reduced.

 Registration

Registration for EF will be done through an online registration form that will be available on Nov. 22 at www.peelschools.org/parents/programs/French/registration

What is the EF program like? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the program? How can you tell if it is the right choice for your child?

 One way to help answer these questions is to attend the information meeting at the EF school your child would attend. Meet the principal and some of the teachers from the school. Hear about the program and have an opportunity to ask questions. Talk with some parents whose children are now in the program. A parent information night will be held at each EF school in Peel on Nov. 21 at 7 p.m.

Register for French Immersion by Jan. 31, 2015

 Are you thinking of registering your child for French Immersion (FI)? For the 2014-15 school year, parents must register children for entry into grade 1 FI by 4 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 31, 2015.

Registration for FI will be done through an online registration form that will be available on Nov. 22 at www.peelschools.org/parents/programs/French/registration.

 

What is the FI program like? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the program? How can you tell if it is the right choice for your child?

 One way to help answer these questions is to attend the information meeting at the FI school your child would attend. Meet the principal and some of the teachers from the school. Hear about the program and have an opportunity to ask questions. Talk with some parents whose children are now in the program. A parent information night will be held at each FI school in Peel on Nov. 21 at 7 p.m.

 

Registration process

 A grade 1 FI enrolment cap is in place. This means that a specific number of spots are available for students entering grade 1 FI. If the number of students registered by the deadline exceeds the number of spots in grade 1 FI, a lottery system will be used to identify students gaining entrance into the grade 1 FI program.

 All students who make the registration deadline will be placed in a lottery and assigned a rank using a computerized random selection process. Spots are not assigned on a first come, first served basis. Once students have been assigned to all available spots, remaining students will be placed, again in rank order, on the school's waitlist.

 Some students will be automatically placed in grade 1 FI. To find out if your child does not need to participate in the lottery, and for more information about the lottery and waitlist processes, visit www.peelschools.org/parents/programs/French/registration .
