French Language Learning - Update

Dear ASD-S Families,

Earlier today the province announced that New Brunswick will not be going forward with the proposed NB Innovative Immersion Program, following recent public consultations. This means that parents of students entering Grade 1 in September will have the option of enrolling them in the existing French Immersion program. While the province is looking at ways to improve both the English Prime and FI programs, language programs for students in Grades K-12 will remain unchanged at this time.

Registration for the Grade 1 Early Immersion and Grade 6 Late Immersion programs for the 2023/2024 school year will open in the coming weeks. You will receive notification from your school when registration opens.

Please find more information in the Government of New Brunswick’s press release here.

Thank you for your continued support or our schools and learners.



Derek O’Brien

Superintendent, ASD-S
