There are two entry points into the French Immersion program; Kindergarten and Grade 1. The families who have remained on our waitlist from the September 2021 Kindergarten registration will preserve the same order of placement status should we have space to take new Grade 1 students in the fall of 2022. Parents of students on the 2021 waitlist will be contacted in February to see if they would like to transfer into the French Immersion program for the Grade 1 entry point. Any new Grade one registrations will be added to the current waitlist.
If requested spaces for French Immersion elementary schools are over-subscribed, placement will be determined by lottery.
Assignment will be based on the following:
- Priority is granted to students who have an older brother or sister residing at the same address that attends the same school and is eligible to return in the next school year.
- Any remaining spaces will be assigned on a lottery basis to those in-district applicants who have submitted complete applications during the registration period.
- In-district students, who miss the registration dates, may still apply to the program, but will be placed at the end of the waitlist.
- Students who move into the district after the selection process is complete may still apply to the program, but will be placed at the end of the waitlist.
