The new high school being built at 2820 Westoak Trails Blvd. is scheduled to open in September 2012. Parents were given a voice Tuesday night that allowed them to share their opinions and concerns regarding enrollment, with a focus on the French Immersion program.
Most of the debate was whether the French Immersion program should start in 2015, when the first graduates from Palermo Public School come through, or if it should be implemented prior to that.
Opponents to the French Immersion program called on the board to make the school English only because of projections that enrollment would be higher if that was the case.
They wanted to ensure that there would be enough room at the new school for the mandated English program.
Only time will tell what they decide. Let's hope that it's a solution that satisfies everyone involved with the school, as well as the residents of Northwest Oakville.
