209.1. For the exercise of its functions and powers, every school board shall establish a commitment-to-success plan that is consistent with the strategic directions and objectives of the department’s strategic plan. The commitment-to-success plan must also meet any expectations communicated under section 459.2. In addition, the period covered by the plan must be harmonized with the period covered by the department’s strategic plan in accordance with any terms prescribed under the first paragraph of section 459.3.
This plan, which the school board may update if necessary, must contain
(1) the context in which the school board acts, particularly the needs of its schools and centres, the main challenges it faces, and the characteristics and expectations of the community it serves;
(2) the directions and objectives selected;
(3) the targets for the period covered by the plan;
(4) the indicators, particularly Québec-wide indicators, to be used to measure achievement of those objectives and targets;
(5) a service statement setting out its objectives with regard to the level and quality of the services it provides; and
(6) any other element determined by the Minister.
In preparing its commitment-to-success plan, the school board shall consult, in particular, the parents’ committee, the advisory committee on services for handicapped students and students with social maladjustments or learning disabilities, the advisory committee on management, the governing boards, the teachers and other staff members, and the students. The parents’ committee and advisory committee on management may, among other things, make recommendations on what should be included in the school board’s commitment-to-success plan.
The school board shall send its commitment-to-success plan to the Minister and make it public on the expiry of 60 to 90 days after sending it or of another period if the school board and the Minister so agree. The commitment-to-success plan takes effect on the date of its publication. The school board shall present the content of its commitment-to-success plan to the public at the meeting following the effective date of the plan. Public notice specifying the date, time and place of the meeting must be given not less than 10 days before it is held.
