English as a Second Language (ESL)

 

The Renfrew County District School Board provides ESL support for both day school students and adults. 

ESL Support for Regular Day School Students

Parents and/or guardians may request ESL support for students who come from countries whose language is neither English or French as well as students born in Canada, but live in homes where the spoken language is neither English or French. Once a principal determines that a student qualifies for ESL support he/she must complete and return the "Request for ESL Support" form to the principal of Continuing and Community Education.  Principals must ensure that all forms are signed and that all required documentation are attached to the form. The principal of Continuing and Community Education will review the form to ensure that it is complete. 

ESL Support for Adults

Non credit Adult ESL classes are provided in communities where it is deemed feasible to do so. School Boards receive funding from the MCCSS based on the number of students attending on a daily basis.    Programs normally run  from September through June. 

Presently, RCDSB offers Adult Non Credit ESL classes at the Mary Street Education Centre located at 480 Mary Street, Pembroke, and at MacKenzie Community School in Deep River.  

Interested individuals should contact the principal of Continuing and Community Education at 613-735-0151 ext. 3323.
