TRURO - The local school board wants to know how parents feel about French programming in their children's schools.
Scott Milner, director of education services with the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board, confirmed during a school board meeting on Wednesday night in Truro that a region-wide French survey is being developed. The intention is to distribute it to parents and interested community members regarding the interest and delivery of optional French programs in area schools.
"It's to glean what communities may want and to give current information" on French programming in CCRSB, said Milner.
"The intent is for as many parents as possible" to have input and "it's open to parents of incoming students as well," added Milner.
The survey is expected to be conducted in April and then community focus groups will be held to discuss the survey results.
Data from the surveys and focus groups will be ready in early fall and presented to the school board for consideration of future French programming. If any changes are required to the current programming, they would not be implemented until the 2014-2015 school year.
