At the Board of Education Public Meeting held on Wednesday, December 14, 2016, the Board of Education agreed that effective September 2017, students currently enrolled in Grade 6 French Immersion at E´cole Glenmore Elementary and E´cole Peter Greer Elementary will transfer to a new Grade 7 French Immersion program at Dr. Knox Middle School.

The Board of Education also agreed that in September 2017 students currently registered in the Grade 6 English program at A.S. Matheson Elementary School will move on to the Grade 7 English program at KLO Middle School.

These decisions follow a comprehensive review of the School District’s French Immersion program. It is expected that other changes will be considered in the future in order to bring long-term stability to French Immersion programs and schools throughout the District.
