BIO OF MEMBER

Francis Giguère (2015-Present)

Eastern Townships School Board

Goals

Professional:

I would like to support every young person in our community to have equal opportunities to complete their education and become a contributing member of the community.

Personal learning:

The more I learn about how research and data can help improve schools, through my involvement with the EBP Project, the more interested I am in expanding my knowledge and skill in this area.

Why are you part of the Lead Data Team?

In my new role, with responsibility for supporting data literacy in our board, the events put on by the EBP Project have been the most influential in helping me to gain perspective around the use of data and its ability to support growth and change. The Lead Data Team seminars have been very useful.
