Special Project School (240 school) in Laval (2018)
The Sir Wilfrid Laurier School Board will begin on Monday, May 14, 2018, a consultation on a Special Project School in Laval. The Special Project School is a school established for the purposes of a particular educational project focused on a specific pedagogical approach or on a specific program and on a particular organization of the curriculum. It offers a distinct curriculum while respecting the subjects mandated by the Basic School Regulations for preschool, primary and secondary education. The School Board may establish the entrance criteria for students to register in the Special Project School. This school is often referred to as a 240 School as it is a special school based on the provisions of Article 240 in the Education Act, which states:
“By way of exception, at the request of a group of parents and after consulting with the parents’ committee, a school board may, with the Minister’s approval, establish a school for the purposes of a specific project other than a religious project, subject to the conditions and for the period determined by the Minister.
The school board may determine the criteria for the enrolment of the students in that school.”
