QUEBEC, April 20, 2016 / CNW Telbec / - As part of the conference of the Association québécoise du personnel de direction des écoles (AQPDE), which took place at Laval University on April 18 and 19, the members paid tribute to to Mr. François Sylvain, director of the Etchemins secondary school, for his energy devoted to the success of his students.

Innovative technologies

Mr. Sylvain strongly believes in the potential of the use of technology in interactions with students. He was also responsible for the development of the first digital class in his school board. Each student was provided with an electronic tablet to learn about new technologies aimed at maximizing educational success.

"We are proud of the departments who innovate, who are creative and who do otherwise to improve student success," said Danielle Boucher, President of AQPDE.

A place of choice for parents

Along with his desire to establish digital classes, Mr. Sylvain believes that the greatest partners in student success are parents. Dissatisfied with the means of communication in place, he researched and then took steps to initiate a wind of change within his school board. Moreover, this year, his school is participating in a pilot project which aims to integrate the brand new Echo portal, a communication system between the various stakeholders in the school environment that places the student at the center of the process.

Next September, all the secondary schools of the Commission scolaire des Navigateurs will take this turn. “Every day, I meet principals who are doing a wonderful job for our students. I believe that we must take the time to recognize, appreciate and support the successes of our management, and this is what the members of AQPDE have decided to do by highlighting the extraordinary work of François Sylvain ”, Danielle Boucher concluded.
