NATION VALLEY — The Conseil scolaire de district catholique de l’Est ontarien (CSDCEO) received awards of distinction at the Canadian Association of Communicators in Education (CACE) gala for their Specialist High Skills Majors (SHSM) program.

The award was presented at CSDCEO Communications Service because the project implementation met a need for student success and because the project complied with the methodology prescribed in communications planning. MHS is a specialized program that allows students to focus on a career path that matches their abilities and interests. Through the campaign, the number of students enrolled at MHS was up seven percent, which is 28 more students. In total, there are 416 students enrolled at MHS CSDCEO.

CACE is a national bilingual professional association aiming to promote and improve the excellence in communications in education. For effective communication, members of CACE contribute to student success.

“Congratulations to the team of communications, as well as teachers for this prestigious recognition. Together we strive for success for all students and that’s why our students 11 and 12 years of the seven secondary schools have the option to customize their course and to register for one of the 10 specialized programs our MHS,” shared François Turpin, Director of Education and Secretary. 

The Catholic School Board of Eastern Ontario District (CSDCEO) is the largest network of French-language schools in the five counties of Stormont, Dundas, Glengarry, Prescott and Russell. In addition to having the highest graduation rate in the region (93.9 percent), the CSDCEO offers programs for the success of all students, Catholic values, good French and a certificate of bilingualism. The CSDCEO provides education to over 10,100 students, divided in several early childhood centres (nurseries), 25 elementary schools, seven high schools and the education and training centre in Eastern Ontario (EOETC).
