Meetings have begun to redefine the school map for the start of the 2022 school year for the colleges concerned by the Department’s social mix system.
While the Haute-Garonne departmental council presented, at the beginning of October, a positive assessment of its social mix system in secondary schools – which has existed since 2017 and which aims to educate students from the Reynerie and Bellefontaine districts in favored colleges of Toulouse and the metropolis – the school map will be de facto modified.
Particularly at the start of the 2022 school year, with the opening of two new establishments in Saint-Simon and Guilhermy, for pupils from the Cugnaux sectors, but also from Villeneuve-Tolosane, Seysses, Portet, Tournefeuille and Toulouse.
According to a report from the FCPE of September 8, the school map “will have to take into account the adequacy between primary and secondary, the construction of the new college in Cugnaux (by 2025-2026). All options should be considered and analyzed. For example, in terms of proximity and safe access for children, the college in Guilhermy seems more appropriate ”.
The saturated Montesquieu college
After having closed the Raymond Badiou (Reynerie) and Bellefontaine colleges for four years, the departmental council launched, at the same time, work on brand new colleges in the Toulouse districts of Saint-Simon (avenue du Général Eisenhower) and Guilhermy.
Asked at the beginning of October on the question of the distribution of students domiciled in the schools of the sectors concerned, the president of the department George Méric proposed that “out of five schools in the sector, two will be attached to the new colleges, the other three potential to enter the colleges favored ”.
Cugnalais students could be affected first and foremost by the new school map. The Montesquieu college is indeed reaching saturation point, notes the FCPE: “The numbers have reached a maximum (theoretical capacity 1,115 students). Today, the college has 1,055 students enrolled and continues to enroll. “
