Viamonde is one of four members of the Association des conseillers(ères) des écoles publique de l'Ontario (ACÉPO).



The board was created January 1, 1998 when the Government of Ontario decided to amalgamate several secular French school boards in the Ontario Peninsula. They included:

French-language school boards in the area prior to the merge in 1998 Number of schools in 1998
Conseil des écoles françaises de la communauté urbaine de Toronto (CEFCUT) 5 elementary schools
2 secondary schools
Conseil scolaire de Niagara Sud 5 elementary schools
1 secondary school
Conseil de l'éducation du comté de Simcoe 3 elementary schools
1 secondary school
Conseil de l'éducation de la ville de London 1 elementary school
1 secondary school
Conseil de l'éducation du comté de Lambton 1 elementary school
1 secondary school
Conseil de la ville de Hamilton 1 secondary school

On November 15, 2010 the board changed its name to Conseil scolaire Viamonde from Conseil scolaire du district du Centre-Sud-Ouest.[2] The board had replaced the Conseil des écoles françaises de la communauté urbaine de Toronto (CEFCUT).

In 2011 the school district announced its intention to buy unused Toronto District School Board buildings; in order to do so, it has to use funds from the Ontario provincial government. After the government denied the funding, the Conseil scolaire Viamonde announced plans to sue the province.[4]
