Commission scolaire de Montréal (CSDM, "Montreal school board"[4]) is a French-language school board located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The school board was created on July 1, 1998, as a result of a law passed by the Quebec government that changed the school board system from denominational to linguistic. Its main predecessor is Commission des écoles catholiques de Montréal (CÉCM) which was composed of both French and English Roman Catholic schools and had been in operation for over 150 years.[5] The CSDM operates 129 elementary schools, 37 secondary schools, 13 adult education centres, and 9 vocational training centres and 28 schooling service centres.[6]

Current issues

The new school board elections take place on Sunday, November 2, 2014. The position of chairman has be chosen by universal suffrage. This is for a four year term.[7] The last school board elections took place in 2007. The Mouvement pour une école moderne et ouverte keep all positions; president (Catherine Harel-Bourdon) and the 13 new chairs.

In November 2014 Yves Bolduc, the Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports of Quebec, suggested moving Ahuntsic – Cartierville, Côte-des-Neiges, Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, Le Sud-Ouest, and Westmount from the CSDM to the Commission scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys (CSMB),[8] which would move 66 schools away from the CDSM,[9] and therefore 30% of the total students of the CSDM.[8] Some students would also move to the Commission scolaire de la Pointe-de-l'Île (CSPÎ).[10]

François Cardinal of La Presse criticized the deal, saying that it was penalizing the CSDM and unfairly rewarding the CSMB.[10]

Arrachons à la CSDM une bonne partie de ses élèves, puis transférons-les à la commission scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys (et un peu à la Commission scolaire de la Pointe-de-l'Île). Comme ça, on «change» les choses... puis on en profite pour pénaliser la CSDM qui dérange, et récompenser la CSMB qui se fait docile. Qui accepte les compressions. Qui permet à ses dirigeants d'accompagner Philippe Couillard lorsqu'il se rend en mission économique en Chine."
