On December 14, 2007, at the “Liviu Damian” Theoretical Lyceum, from Rîșcani was organized the final seminar for 2007 within the project “Towards Good Governance and Accountability in Schools”, developed in partnership with Center Education 2000+, Bucharest and supported by Open Society Institute, Budapest. At the seminar, from each 7 involved schools 2 managers have participated.

The activity was coordinated by Dumitru Tcacencu, the director of “Liviu Damian” Theoretical Lyceum, and Viorica Bajureanu, vice-director, who shared their achievements and problems in the educational activity. The discussed topics during the seminar were:

  • The educational partnership ended between the Lyceum Board and pupils’ parents;
  • The activity of the Children and Youth Local Council;
  • The productive partnerships with the Local Public Administration.

Each team within the project received the expertise of School Development Plan (SDP), performed by the expert-trainers of the Educational Center PRO DIDACTICA. On the base of SDP they were recommended to develop a Managerial Action Plan for January –June 2008.
We hope that the advanced experience of the schools involved in the project would contribute to a better governance and accountability in school, and would be an example for other educational institutions and stakeholders.
