Eastern Town­ships School Board’s Di­rec­tor Gen­eral Takes on New Chal­lenges with the Min­istère de l’Éd­u­ca­tion, du Loisir et du Sport

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Ma­gog

It2, 2013.

is with mixed emo­tions that Mr. Michael Mur­ray, chair­man of the Coun­cil of Com­mis­sion­ers of the Eastern Town­ships School Board (ETSB), an­nounces that Chan­tal C. Beaulieu, cur­rently Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the ETSB, has been ap­pointed as the

ef­fec­tive De­cem­ber

Ms. Beaulieu brought with her to the ETSB a strong back­ground in law hav­ing worked as a lit­i­ga­tor spe­cial­iz­ing in labour and ed­u­ca­tion law for 12 years with Ogilvy Renault and LeCorre et as­so­ciés be­fore join­ing the English Mon­treal School Board in 1999 as Se­nior Le­gal Coun­sel.

In 2000, she joined the ETSB as Sec­re­tary Gen­eral and was pro­moted to As­sis­tant Di­rec­tor Gen­eral (ADG) in 2002 and con­se­quently Di­rec­tor Gen­eral in 2010. Ms. Beaulieu spear­headed the dropout preven­tion dossier, tak­ing the ETSB’s dropout rate from a high of 39.4% for the 2004-2005 school year to 18.8% for 2010-2011. Through her lead­er­ship and vi­sion, the ETSB has not only de­creased its dropout rate but also im­proved suc­cess rates across the school board and ne­go­ti­ated a three-board agree­ment, to name but a few. “Al­though we are sorry to see Ms. Beaulieu leave the ETSB, we know that she is an ex­cel­lent choice to rep­re­sent the English com­mu­nity at the min­istry level. We have a solid team in place and have just com­pleted our strate­gic plan for 2013-2018, which will give us con­ti­nu­ity and sta­bil­ity,” said Mr. Michael Mur­ray, Chair­man of the ETSB.

On be­half of the Coun­cil of Com­mis­sion­ers, stu­dents and staff of the Eastern Town­ships School Board, we wish Ms. Beaulieu all the best in her new po­si­tion and look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to work and col­lab­o­rate with her at the min­istry.

Michael Mur­ray, Chair­man of the Eastern Town­ships School Board
