The SitSat is an extension of the RÉCIT Provincial Service.
  

  

Definition :
The term SitSat is derived from the French "site satellite". Our own (English sector) satellite site, or SitSat, is a group of center directors from different parts of the province who identify the ICT (information and communication technology) needs in the regions and form teams of teachers to work on pedagogical development. The SitSat is an extension of the RÉCIT Provincial Service.
  

First meeting of the English SitSat, 2002
November 1, 2002 was this year's first meeting of the English SitSat, held at the English Montreal School Board. A group of dynamic teachers from all over the province got together to explore the possibilities in terms of pedagogical projects for this year's contribution to the Edumatic Web site. Keep a look out for interesting things to come! 
 

In the Adult Education sector, the provincial service has its own regional extensions through its satellite sites (SitSat). There is one English SitSat for adult education, and twelve French sector SitSats.

 Provincial services in the youth sector have developed their own network in collaboration with the local services or with other representatives, depending on the needs of the region.
  

Regional Dialogue
School boards within the same region are responsible for ensuring that they work together, in collaboration with the regional offices of the Ministère, under the authority of a delegation from the regional committee of directors general.
  
This kind of regional consultation is necessary to ensure regional representation in all issues dealt with by the provincial services of the RÉCIT: the five subject areas, preschool education and special education (specifically in the youth sector), as well as Adult Education and vocational and technical education. Ongoing communication between the sectors allows all players to remain open to working together whenever and wherever network services are available.
  
Regional dialogue also allows school boards to designate, for each region, one resource person from all local services or other services (of the adult sector or in vocational education), who will help in carrying out the various provincial mandates.
  
The purpose of this kind of regional consultation is to set up an effective partnership to help develop students’ competencies through the integration of technologies in the various subjects areas of the education program; it also aims to respond to the needs of the different types of student populations.
