After his time in a welcoming class, the pupil is integrated into a regular class at his local school. The moment of integration and his placement are decided during a meeting which usually includes the school team. The passage and placement criteria can be at several levels, namely: the student’s potential for success, progress in French, mathematics level, length of stay in the welcoming class, motivation, and age as of September 30 of the following school year.
When the student begins school, parents are invited to meet with the principal and teacher. This is an important moment, when all the information necessary for entering the classroom is transmitted. Parents who understand little French are invited to bring a translator with them.
