Transfer of Schools, Major School Change, EMSB budget and Willingdon podcasts

TRANSFER OF SCHOOLS: EMSB Chairman Angela Mancini is deeply disappointed with the decision by Quebec Education Minister Jean-Francois Roberge’s  to transfer two school buildings – John Paul I Junior High and General Vanier in St. Léonard – to the Commission scolaire de la Pointe-de-l’Ile (CSPI). Gerald McShane Elementary School in Montreal North will not be transferred. As requested by the Minister, a copy of the letter explaining his decision has been transmitted to parents and staff of the three schools. Ms. Mancini has announced that a Town Hall meeting only for parents, administrators and Governing Board members from John Paul I and General Vanier will take place next Tuesday evening, July 2 at Laurier Macdonald High School in St. Léonard. At that meeting a contingency plan will be presented. Please read our full press release and the letter from the Minister.


MAJOR SCHOOL CHANGE: The EMSB has formally launched its first Major School Change consultation since 2012 in an effort to assist two French school boards in need of more space for their students. A number of scenarios involving possible school mergers and relocations in the East End have been proposed by the EMSB Long Range Planning Committee. These will now go out for consultation. Schools identified will be asked to present briefs in December, with hearings scheduled for January 2020 followed by a special board meeting to vote on the proposals with any changes to take effect on July 1, 2020. A second Major School Change consultation  may be launched in the spring of 2020. The document will soon be posted on the EMSB website. However, in light of the Minister's decision, some adjustments may be necessary.

EMSB ADOPTS BALANCED BUDGET: On June 26 the EMSB Council of Commissioners adopted a balanced budget for the 2019-2020 academic year.  The Council is pleased to highlight that, according to the budgetary rules, the EMSB has included in next year’s budget, the equivalent of 15 percent of the adjusted June 30, 2018 accumulated surplus.  This will allow the board to benefit from an amount of close to $7.3 million in additional operating monies to support the educational projects in all EMSB schools and centres next year.   Approximately 20 percent of this amount ($1.3 million) will be allocated directly to schools and centres to support local projects and initiatives. Another $1.7 million is invested in direct services to students and for various educational initiatives to support various programs in partnership with the schools and centres. An amount of $2 million is reserved for costs related to relocation of students and expansion of space related to the use of our school buildings.

WILLINGDON EXPANSION: There has been a lot of excitement at Willingdon Elementary School in NDG in recent months as they prepare for the introduction of the Senior Campus. It will debut on Coronation Avenue in September for students in Grades 5 and 6. Meanwhile, Westmount Park Elementary School will close for two years for renovations. Students will be relocated to facilities in Ville Emard and at the Marymount Academy International campus in NDG. Veteran broadcaster Suzanne Desautels has prepared some fantastic podcasts (short radio shows) on the moves. They make for great listening.

  1. Overpopulation and illegal immigration and unlimited legal immigration were bound to compound the issue of space.

  2. Really the issue is Bill 101 - get rid of that. Any immigrant proficient in English could be made an exception since the french system is at capacity. AND/OR become a bilingual school board and teach 100% of French to immigrants...this could save the buildings,jobs, and take a load off the French system.

  3. It was very sad. I thought this is a freedom Country instead of limits people's right to choose the school for their children. Freedom Country, it means freedom. We have the right to register the children to English school, instead We did not have this kind a right. It sounds like Communist

  68. 2000년대 초 처음 나온 스포츠토토는 게임 참가자가 야구,농구,축구,골프,씨름 등의 경기 결과를 예측해 베팅한 뒤 결과에 따라 배당금을 받는 게임입니다. 스포츠경기의 승,무,패를 맞히는 게임(승부식), 경기 득점,실점을 맞히는 게임(점수식), 승·무·패와 득실점을 동시에 맞히는 게임(혼합식) 등으로 구분돼 있다. 우리나라의 유일한 국민체육진흥공단이 발행하는 합법적인 베팅업체는 케이토토 베트맨토토입니다. 우리 나라의 합법적인 베팅업체 케이토토,베트맨토토는 배당률도 낮고 경기수가 적습니다. 결국 회원들은 베트맨토토에서 수익을 내는게 거의 불가능하다고 봅니다. 그래서 사람들은 보다 다양하고 선택권이 넓은 사설토토사이트로 눈을 돌렸습니다. 케이토토,베트맨토토보다 배당, 안전성 등 매력적인 부분이 많았습니다. 하지만 단점은 있었습니다. 먹튀가 존재한다는 점입니다. 반면에 장점도 있었습니다.
