The Western Québec School Board (WQSB) issued a letter to the parents, staff and students Wednesday reassuring them that following the adoption of Bill 40, reforming the Québec education system, the school board will maintain its services. According to the WQSB, the board will undertake the mandated modifications to its present governance structure to comply with the new legislation transforming school board into a service centre.

As mentioned in the letter, this change is immediate in the French school boards, but Bill 40 has allowed for a transition period for the Anglophone school boards maintaining their present council of commissioners until November 2020.

’’We are committed to ensuring that we continue to provide the best possible conditions for quality teaching and learning and student success. We are committed to working with our partners to make the new governance structure beneficial for our students, parents, and staff.’’

Similar to the CSHBO, the Western Québec ensures that following the transition it will maintain the same values, mission, vision and objectives that have contributed to the success of its students and communities.
