Path 10 - Set up community projects targeting at-risk secondary school students in the most disadvantaged areas of Montréal
Community efforts and convergent actions on the part of several socioeconomic players will provide for better support for students at school and limit the number of dropouts.
Support for the Réseau réussite Montréal (Montréal Success Network)
The Réseau réussite Montréal, which includes the principal partners of the school boards, will support the joint action of all those involved on the local level.*
With the help of such support, all the school boards of the Island of Montréal will implement an action plan in close association with the community and all the schools’ partners. To this end, MELS will join with the school boards in developing and signing a specific agreement outlining the contributions of the partners.
The targeted schools will work with parents and partners in the health and social services system, the municipality, community organizations and the employment and business sectors in order to:
- ensure that students at risk of dropping out stay in school
- encourage young people who have dropped out to return to secondary school
* The Commission scolaire de Montréal has targeted the Centre-Sud area; the Lester-B-Pearson and Marguerite Bourgeoys school boards have targeted the Ville LaSalle area; the Commission scolaire de la Pointe de l’Île and the English Montréal School Board have targeted the Montréal-Nord area.
