The Greater North Central Francophone Education Region No. 2, known in French as the Conseil scolaire Centre-Nord (CSCN), is one of Alberta’s four French language school board. French language education is intended for children who are eligible under section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The CSCN is a composite board, operating both public and catholic francophone schools in Beaumont, Camrose, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Jasper, Legal, Lloydminster, Red Deer, Sherwood Park, St. Albert and Wainwright. The CSCN receives funding for all students from the provincial Government of Alberta.

History[edit]

In 1993, the Government of Alberta adopted a bill amending the School Act to comply with Mahe v. Alberta (1990), a leading Supreme Court of Canada decision on the minority language education rights under section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The district was created in 1994 under section 223.3 of the School Act under the name Regional Authority of the North Central Francophone Education Region No. 4 (since changed to Greater North Central Francophone Education Region No. 2). It is one of four French school boards in Alberta.[4]

Governance[edit]

According to the School Act (2001), the seven members of the Board of Trustees are elected to represent francophone communities in central and northern Alberta. The composite regional Authority’s mandate is to protect the linguistic and confessional rights of section 23 holders.

The CSCN updates its list of electors by carrying out a census, as required. Results of the census determine the proportion of Public school Trustees and Catholic school Trustees to be elected to the Board. The Catholic trustees constitute a separate entity – Conseil scolaire catholique Centre-Nord – according to section 255.4 of the School Act (2001). Based on the 2010 census, there are two Public school trustees and five Catholic school trustees.

Size[edit]

In 2016-2017 school year, there were approximately 3,200 students attending 19 schools in total: 9 elementary schools, 1 elementary/junior high school, 1 junior high school, 2 junior/senior high school, 5 elementary/junior/senior high schools, and 1 senior high school.

The CSCN employs approximately 350 teachers and professionals.
