Western Québec School Board


WQSB is currently reviewing their process for Homeschooling using the Québec Home Schooling Policy framework to develop a policy. We are currently accepting input and suggestions from all stakeholders interested. Written submissions may be sent to Stewart Aitken: Director of Educational Services – saitken@wqsb.qc.ca

We strongly believe that through a collaborative approach we can develop a delivery model of quality education that would be in the best interest of all children within our district.  Should there be any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Homeschooling Process – Tips

Homeschooling is an option available to all parents under the Education Act.

Families interested in this option are requested to contact Stewart Aitken, Director of Educational Services for the WQSB at the board office, who oversees homeschooling.

Perspective families should inform themselves by reading the Québec Government Policy Framework for Home Schooling which outlines the duties and responsibilities of all stakeholders, and review the Québec Education Program for the grade levels of their children to be homeschooled.  Electronic links can be forwarded from the director.

The educational yearly plan for each child to be homeschooled needs to be forwarded to the WQSB.  General guidance is offered to families as needed.

The planning, textbooks, and learning materials are the responsibility of the homeschool family, but may be available in certain situations.

Homeschool students can be assessed in many ways depending on the child’s needs and level.  Assessment may include a portfolio, exams, or tests.  Results are given to parents in order to provide feedback as to how the student is progressing academically.

The first step is to register.

We look forward to working with you!
