Second edition of the seminar for school principals and directors

THEY MET FRIDAY, JUNE 9TH, AT THE CCISM (INTER PROFESSIONAL CONSULAR CHAMBER OF SAINT-MARTIN) TO DISCUSS THE COORDINATION BETWEEN NATIONAL, ACADEMIC, AND SCHOOL POLICIES.

Last year, the national education services of Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin organized in Saint-Barthélemy the first seminar for principals and directors. This year, the second edition of the seminar was held in Saint-Martin (CCISM) last week on the topic of: How to coordinate the national, academic, and school policies? “It is important for us to discuss the consistency between all these objectives,” Michel Sanz, IA-DAASEN (Academic Inspector for the Director of National Education Services) for Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin, explained at the end of the session.

It was also an opportunity to gain perspective with respect to their policies. This is why he had asked Frédéric Anciaux, ÉSPÉ (College of Teacher and Education) professor and researcher from Guadeloupe, who presented the state of research in terms of projects. The afternoon was dedicated to networking and sharing between principals and directors. “Even if everyone knows one another, the opportunities to work together are very rare, contrary to popular belief,” Sanz said.

Thus workshops were organized to brainstorm different solutions on how to improve things such as language proficiency, school climate, etc. “When the results of the National Diploma are less than stellar, this impacts the Grade 10 teachers because we are all in the same basket,” he added while putting things into perspective. “I believe that we live based on misconceptions about violence in schools and the catastrophic results... these ideas aren’t always true. You just have to look at the works of art created for the Art en Fête, it lifts the spirit!”
