2018 June 11 Information Session – Duchess Park PAC

Notes:

  • The surveys are in the mail! They’re expected to arrive Tuesday/Wednesday. DPAC or the Duchess Park PAC cannot take any surveys, if you don’t receive a letter visit www.sd57.bc.ca
  • During the presentation, the principal of Duchess Park was asked, given his experience with setting up classes, how many students it would take to run a viable French immersion program in a school. His estimate would be about 50 students a grade.
  • The survey refers to an option for French immersion secondary programs to be offered at two schools. In the presentation, the numbers used refer to it at Kelly Road and PGSS based solely on numbers – the schools are not specified in the survey.
  • Use your voice, fill out the survey, and make suggestions to the district. There’s a reason that they are asking for input, and this is everyone’s opportunity to provide input to the district.

One thought on “Presentation at Duchess Park

  1. I’m wondering if there will be a presentation by the DPAC about the options. I really don’t feel that I am knowledgeable about the pros and cons of either situation.
