Today, the Toronto District School Board launched the largest consultations of its kind in Board history. The consultations mark the beginning of a conversation about the changes that are needed to
meet the future needs of students and will help form the TDSB’s new Kindergarten to Grade 12 strategy.
These consultations are an opportunity to contribute to the future of our students in our schools. The conversations will ensure our future plans are based on the programs that best support our students as we develop a plan to guide us into the future. Simply put, we need the right programs in the right spaces in the right places.
We know how important it is to have the right opportunities and supports in place to prepare students for the future as they transition from TDSB schools to future learning choices, careers and life as responsible, caring citizens in our democratic society.
Over the course of the next few weeks we will be consulting at SuperCouncil Meetings, Quad Dialogues, FOS Focus Groups, 4 City Wide Forums, Ward Councils as requested, FOS Meetings, TSAA Executive Meeting, Employee Group Executive Meetings, and Senior Team Council. Community members will also have the opportunity to participate online by filling out a survey or participating in a virtual consultation session.
We want to begin by starting an open, inclusive dialogue around how we can bridge today’s education with the future needs of schools and learning. The dates and times for the city wide consultations are below. All meetings are from 7 – 9 pm.
