Although the educational success of young people is among schools' top priorities, Québec schools have long shown concern for the health and well-being of the young people for whom they are responsible. Moreover, the reform of the education system reasserts the importance for students of acquiring competencies and developing behaviours that improve their health and well-being. It also underscores the fact that schools must provide students with a safe environment that fosters their personal and social development.
Schools share this concern with many partners, and above all, with parents, who want their children to benefit from the best possible conditions to ensure their harmonious development and success in life. In fact, all the partners involved are striving to better coordinate their efforts.
