    The school board is considering a centralized application system for FI but parents would not be able to choose the school.
    I can see an issue for families in Binbrook or Waterdown that might get a placement for their child in Hamilton but maybe not have a car to bring them into the city. Or conversely, Hamilton family near HSR routes getting a Waterdown (there is HSR service to GO Aldershot) or Binbrook placement (no HSR service) and again, not having a car to drive the child to the assigned school.

    Change in FI deadline:

    Trustees agreed to push back the application deadline to the end of November after their French immersion advisory committee and more than a third of respondents to an online survey this fall opposed a proposed mid-October cutoff. As a result, the board will now offer parents a location for French immersion in mid-December and give them a month to register their child.

    Accomodation review related to Ancaster elementary schools sees one plan favoured to rebuild CH Bray, close Fessenden and Queens Rangers schools and rebuild Ancaster Senior as JK-8 school with French Immersion program (currently offered across the road at Fessenden).
