French as a Second Language Program Reviews
The SCDSB offers programming options such as French as a Second Language (FSL) in our elementary and secondary schools. In some circumstances, these programs draw students from a larger geographical area than their normal attendance area. The programs are reviewed on a regular basis to help to balance enrolment across the county and to minimize impacts on home school student populations.

A program review has been approved to balance student enrolment and to minimize impacts on home school student populations. A proposed option is splitting the FSL program, with some grades attending Mundy's Bay Public School and the others attending Huron Park Public School.

Grade 7 – 12 School
