Submitting a project proposal
The project proposals submitted must adhere to the terms and conditions established by the school board or the Direction de l'enseignement privé of the Ministère. A model of the Cultural Workshop at School Project Submission Form is provided to school boards for this purpose.
For more details, teachers can contact their school principal, who can, if necessary, contact the person responsible for Culture-Education files at the school board. The principal could also contact the Direction de l’enseignement privé at the Ministère.
Appropriate preparation of the students must be provided in accordance with the characteristics of the workshop described in theThe artist, writer or representative of a cultural organization responsible for conducting the cultural workshop at the school should contact the students prior to the workshop to discuss the content of the activity, its duration, what to do to prepare for it, and possible ways of transferring what they will learn.
It should be noted that the cultural resource person may carry out activities several times as part of the same project and that, in giving a workshop, this person in no way serves as a substitute for the teacher. Accordingly, the teacher must be present in the classroom for the duration of the project.
Evaluation of requests for financial assistance
A project evaluation, selection and follow-up process must be established by the school board or private school. It is up to the school board or the Direction de l'enseignement privé of the Ministère to accept or refuse project submissions.
Note that to be considered eligible, a request must involve the participation of a cultural resource listed in the Répertoire culture-éducation . It is necessary to approach the cultural resource before submitting a request. If the workshop is to be conducted by videoconference, it is recommended that audiovisual and connection checks be carried out first with each participant in order to ensure that the best possible conditions are in place.
The assessment of project proposals must take into account the following factors:
- effective collaboration between teachers and cultural resources
- recruitment of the greatest possible number of students and their active participation throughout the project
- appropriateness of the project’s preparation and transfer-of-learning activities
- connections with the Québec Education Program
- diversity of funding sources
