State of IL-E Programs in Ontario


Based on a survey of school districts across Ontario, ILEA compiled some results related to the state of IL-E programs across the province. ILEA spent much time connecting with school boards to get a comprehensive picture of third language programs at the elementary level with hopes to move into a similar survey for secondary programs in the future. The results were quite interesting. The most profound piece of data was the fact that professional development was by far the most identified need in the program yet many school boards were limited in what they could provide. As well, it became evident that providers struggle with the kinds of expenses that are put towards the program grants received by the province in offering the program. This data will help ILEA in its future advocacy initiatives while also informing our association of future directions and products. For any other information contact ILEA by email:
