Board Meeting Highlights May 14, 2018
Two presentations were given to the Board. First by Linda Markus, Student Services Coordinator, regarding current and possibly future student services government programs.
Meaghan Dunnigan, French Immersion Teacher, gave a presentation regarding the French Immersion Program.
She noted that this year marks the 37th year of French Immersion instruction in Kelsey School Division. Growth and change has occurred over those years, and the demand for the program continues to grow. There are twelve teachers involved in French Immersion instruction.
Another aspect noted was that the majority (75-88%) of Grades K-5 students achieve at an above grade level in English, French reading and writing, and in Mathematics.
At middle school levels in provincial assessments, Grade 7 and 8 achievements in numbers sense and number skills are also high, as is student engagement. Grade 8 reading comprehension and writing in both English and French is also high.
The use of a French educational assistant has helped below level students, as has after school tutoring.
Each year the French Immersion teachers agree on a few language goals to promote. Staff development occurs monthly to develop teacher skills and strategies. Teachers also reach out to francophone community members for class visits to encourage student language skills.
