School pairing or ”appariement”
It is an official agreement between an American school and a French school. It helps to connect students, teachers and institutions. Whether the exchanges are in electronic form (emails, Skype, etc.) or school trips, the pairing facilitates administrative procedures and allows French schools to receive financial assistance. An “appariement” can also help alleviate insurance problems.
