$12 mil­lion from Que­bec to re­duce drop-outs

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

The TECIE (Ta­ble es­tri­enne de con­cer­ta­tion in­teror­dres en ed­u­ca­tion) and the PREE (Pro­jet parte­naires pour la reussite ed­uca­tive en Estrie) are both happy with the an­nounce­ment by the Que­bec govern­ment of an in­vest­ment of al­most $12.8 mil­lion to sup­port school per­se­ver­ance and ed­u­ca­tional suc­cess IRC’s (in­stances re­gion­als de con­cer­ta­tion). With the an­nounce­ment the govern­ment rec­og­nizes the im­por­tance of this work in the suc­cess of youth and its con­tri­bu­tion in meet­ing the min­istry’s di­ploma aims. This clear sup­port and col­lab­o­ra­tion will be im­por­tant in the de­vel­op­ment of a sup­ported part­ner­ship with the Que­bec govern­ment and will be hope­ful for the youth of the Estrie and all re­gions of Que­bec. The TECIE and the PREE will be ac­tive and in­volved part­ners in this col­lab­o­ra­tion.

The TECIE has as its mis­sion the mo­bi­liza­tion of the en­tire com­mu­nity in the Estrie to make school suc­cess a ma­jor is­sue in the so­cial, eco­nomic and cul­tural de­vel­op­ment of the re­gion. The PREE Project is re­spon­si­ble for putting in mo­tion mo­bi­liza­tion and ac­tion plans to re­duce the high school drop-out rate and in­crease the num­ber of youth with diplo­mas in the Estrie.
