The Marguerite-Bourgeoys School Board (Commission scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys) was a French language public School Board on Montreal Island, Quebec, Canada. Its headquarters was in the Saint-Laurent borough of Montreal. Its education centre was in LaSalle, also in Montreal.[1] It was named after Marguerite Bourgeoys (1620–1700), a French nun who helped start education infrastructure in the new colony.

History

In 2005-2006 the teachers went on strike to increase funds for the schools and smaller class sizes (average of 30 students per class) because it was becoming difficult to teach the students. To help the teachers, the schools now employ resource teachers.[2][3]

In 2014 the government of Quebec planned to move 66 schools from the Commission scolaire de Montréal (CSDM) to the CSMB. That year the school board chairperson Diane Lamarche-Venne stated that the CSMB was unaware that Quebec planned to move the schools and that it had never lobbied for that.[4]

On June 15, 2020, Centre de services scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys replaced the former Commission scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys, which 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.
