Abstract
The Quebec English School Boards Association was founded in 1929. The role of the association is to represent the nine English school boards of Québec as well as the Littoral School Board, a special status school board. Our member boards cover the full geographic territory of Québec with some board territories covering more than 400,000 square kilometres, equal to the land area of Spain. Our board student enrolments range from 1,300 (Eastern Shores in the Gaspé region) to more than 25,000 for each of the 2 boards serving the Island of Montr al. Our network is comprised of about 340 schools and adult centres, some with enrolment well below 100 to as many as 2,000. Our boards serve the youth sector from Kindergarten to Secondary V (grade 11). They also deliver Adult Education and Vocational Training. Some of our boards offer pre-kindergarten programs to 4-year-old children and the Adult and Vocational sectors cater to students 16 years of age and older. All told there are approximately 100,000 students in the minority-language English public school system.
