French as a Second Language (FSL)

Release of Welcoming English Language Learners into FSL Programs document

In September 2016, the Ministry of Education announced the release of Welcoming English Language Learners into French as a Second Language Programs

It builds on A Framework for French as a Second Language in Ontario Schools, Kindergarten to Grade 12 with additional case studies, research, and strategies relevant to English language learners.  

In addition, this Spark slideshow has been shared with school board staff and provides an update on the document, as well as information about new professional learning resources produced in the 2015-2016 school year in support of strengthening FSL in Ontario.
