Two sessions discuss school language options

The Abbotsford school district is seeking input on the language classes the community would like to see offered at local schools.

The Abbotsford school district is holding two focus groups this week for the community to discuss language options in local schools.

The sessions take place on Wednesday, April 4 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Centre of Resources for Education facility, 33299 Robertson Ave.

The ministry of education requires that all students take a second-language class, and eight options are available in B.C., including French.

The district wants to know which options the community would prefer be offered in Abbotsford. Those attending must register by contacting Susan Green by noon on Tuesday, April 3 at 604-859-4891 (local 1233) or susan_green@sd34.bc.ca.
