Evaluation of students in the youth sector

On September 9, 2021, the Education Minister informed us of the changes affecting the evaluation of students in the youth sector.

These changes, stemming from the 2021-2022 Revitalization Plan for Educational Success: Education Beyond the Pandemic, aim to make the necessary adaptations in the context of the pandemic and will extend to Nunavik.
