Montreal, December 16, 2016 – The Quebec English School Boards Association (QESBA) and its member Boards support the cooperative and collaborative approach being demonstrated in the current investigation into international programs. “The Minister has the right to designate an auditor by virtue of the Education Act” stated QESBA President Jennifer Maccarone.

“All of our members are committed to being fully open and transparent in this investigation and have always cooperated with the Ministry. In the meantime, Commissioners and Chairpersons in each Board remain focused on the main objective of our school board system – the success of every student. The investigation will take its course and the boards will take all necessary measures to ensure that students are not affected by this” concluded the President.
