Reading Recovery - French Immersion


French Immersion, District-level initiative, Northern B.C. Region, 2016-2017


The district undertook discussions at the senior management level regarding the possibilities of offering "Reading Recovery" to French Immersion students at the K-1 level.  Senior management proceeded to investigate delivery and training options to ensure its viability within the district. Jerome Beauchamp, our Director of Instruction - Education Services, spearheaded the investigation into possible implementation.


The district's investigation revealed the first opportunity to provide Reading Recovery in the 2017-18 school year given the availability of a trainer qualified to train school staff in the delivery of the program. The district has seen considerable improvements in literacy for children exposed to the program over the past 20 years and is excited to offer it to French Immersion students.
