Toronto District School Board

Equitable and Inclusive Education

Everyday staff at the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) work to support the uniqueness and diversity of students. We strive to make all students and staff feel welcome and accepted in their school so that they can be successful and reach their full potential regardless of their background or personal circumstances. 

Through the work of the Equitable and Inclusive Schools team the Board ensures that fairness, equity, and inclusion are essential principles in our schools, and are integrated into all policies, programs, operations, and practices.
Our work is guided by the Equity Foundation Statement and enhanced by the contributions of a diverse community of students, parents and community groups through the Equity Policy Advisory Committee

Together, we work to develop inclusive curriculum that reflects our diverse student population; develop plans for student engagement; and provide professional development for our teachers and staff to help all students succeed.  

The TDSB is recognized as a world leader in equitable and inclusive schools and in 2008 was awarded with the prestigious Carl Bertelsmann Prize for outstanding commitment to equity in education.
