EMSB TO FORMALLY PRESENT PARTNERSHIP AGREEMENT WITH MEES

MONTREAL, JANUARY 8, 2018-    The English Montreal School Board will hold a public meeting on Thursday,  January 11 (6:30 pm) at 6000 Fielding Avenue at which time it will formally present the results from its 2016-2017 partnership agreement with the Ministère de l'Éducation et de l'Enseignement supérieur (MEES).

Article 220 of the Education Act requires each school board to report on its Partnership Agreement in its annual report. This informs all stakeholders in its territory an account of the implementation of its strategic plan and the results obtained with regard to the goals and measurable objectives set out in the partnership agreement that was entered into with the MEES on July 1, 2010.

The annual report informs the reader of the board’s objectives and targets set, the context as to why they were established, the results obtained, the board’s interpretation and the adjustments or corrective strategies to be implemented as a consequence of these results.
 
This report also analyzes the degree of success of the strategies employed and their contribution to the attainment of the objectives, enabling the Board to identify strategies that are less effective and the need to be modified or discontinued. Where there is insufficient progress, the board re-examines once again its educational and organizational practices and determines what new strategies should be developed to increase student success.

Also on January 11, members of the Central Parents Committee will participate in a workshop aimed at providing feedback on what they would like to see included in the EMSB’s Commitment to Success Plan presently in development.  Parents will have an opportunity to tell the board what areas of intervention the school board should prioritize when it comes to student success.
