The City acknowledged during Hooked on School Days
Hooked on School Days (HSD), from February 17 to 21, are just around the corner! Concertation Montréal is proud to be associated with Réseau Réussite Montréal to support this initiative, which is only good news.
Did you know that 23% of school dropouts are in Montreal and that 15.9% of young Montrealers drop out before obtaining their first diploma? Thanks to multiple initiatives, we have seen a 14.6% improvement since 2009 in the graduation rate of young Montrealers, representing 83.3% of young people who obtain a first degree.
Dollard-des-Ormeaux's elected officials have decided to do their part for student retention by adopting a resolution at their municipal council session stating that they proudly support the HSD. Through their office, the elected officials have the opportunity to contribute to student retention. Libraries, recreation centres and school safety are all means available to municipal elected officials to promote student retention.
Concertation Montréal is proposing a number of actions to make these days a success, including a social media campaign called #LesÉlusPourLaRéussiteÉducative!
