WHAT ARE THE CRITERIA FOR FI/EFSL STOP LOCATIONS?

Simcoe County District School Board (SCDSB) French Immersion (FI) and Extended French (EFSL) stop locations typically do not follow the same criteria as regular home-to-school stop locations, as per SCDSB policy.

Criteria for FI/EFSL stop locations are as follows:

• Centralized community school vehicle stops in different locations from regular bus stops to avoid student identification confusion and traffic congestion;

• Availability of parking for parents to drop off students and to await students in a safe manner;

• In public spaces or locations where groups of students may safely gather;

• Not on roadsides unless reviewed and approved following a request through the school;

• Not to be at, or adjacent to, a school location to avoid student identification confusion and traffic congestion;

• Stop locations must have winter maintenance.
