Dur­ing the ETSB Coun­cil of Com­mis­sion­ers’ meet­ing held on Jan­uary 24th, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Chan­tal C. Beaulieu pre­sented the 2010-2011 An­nual Re­port. There were many high­lights in that re­port, in­clud­ing a re­cap of the year’s main ac­com­plish­ments that in­cluded a sig­nif­i­cant de­crease in the high school drop-out rate, the con­clu­sion of the Man­age­ment Ed­u­ca­tional Suc­cess Agree­ments (MESA’S), the join­ing of forces of the Global Learn­ing In­sti­tute and the Dis­tance Ed­u­ca­tion Pro­gram and the evo­lu­tion of the En­hanced Learn­ing

Three new mem­bers were wel­comed to the coun­cil of com­mis­sion­ers: Daniel Brodie, Jen­nifer Down­ing-bar­dati and Jane War­dle. The man­dates of the two par­ent-com­mis­sion­ers, Tina Bilodeau and Paul Laberge, were re­newed.

Four of the five ETSB gaols as stated in the board’s Part­ner­ship Agree­ment have been at­tained. Those are : the in­crease in grad­u­a­tion and qual­i­fi­ca­tion rates be­fore the age of 20; the im­prove­ment in the suc­cess and re­ten­tion of cer­tain tar­get groups; im­prove­ment in the health and safety of the en­vi­ron­ment; and the in­crease in the num­ber of stu­dents un­der the age of 20 in vo­ca­tional train­ing. The goal not yet ac­com­plished is the im­prove­ment in French and English by ETSB sec­ondary stu­dents.

Many of the board’s schools have had ren­o­va­tions. Win­dows and the ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem were re­placed at Len­noxville El­e­men­tary School; win­dows and doors were re­placed at Cook­shire El­e­men­tary; ex­te­rior doors, roof and the boiler was re­placed at Sun­ny­side El­e­men­tary; new gen­er­a­tors were in­stalled at Rich­mond Re­gional and New Hori­zon Adult Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre; the bus road was re­paired and the ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem was re­placed at Alexan­der Galt High School.
