The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board will be holding a special board meeting this Monday to consider enhancing French language education.

The first will be to approve the designation of the former St. Gregory Catholic Elementary School site as a phased-in single track French Immersion school beginning September 2015.

If approved, starting in the 2015-2016 school year, French Immersion will be available in JK/SK and Grade 1 with a new grade added each subsequent year. Grade 2 could also start in September of there is significant interest. The French Immersion boundary would encompass families/students from Tecumseh/Lakeshore, East Riverside and Forest Glade areas. (St. Pius X, St. Peter, St. William, St. John the Baptist, St. John Vianney, H.J. Lassaline and L.A. Desmarais).

In addition, the board will look to approve a dual track English and French Immersion programs at St. Joseph Catholic Elementary School beginning September 2015.

Just like at St. Gregory, French Immersion initially will be available in JK/SK and Grade 1 with a new grade added each subsequent year. The French Immersion boundary for St. Joseph Catholic Elementary school would encompass families/students from LaSalle/Amherstburg areas (St. Joseph, Holy Cross, Sacred Heart, Stella Maris and St. Bernard) The English track from JK to grade 8 will continue at St. Joseph as normal.

The board will meet Monday January 19th, 2015 at 7pm at the Windsor Essex Catholic Education Centre.
