Delivering on Years of Action Plan

Wednesday, April 09, 2014
Categories: News Releases, Board and Trustee Governance

The Toronto District School Board is making important gains in a number of key areas and continues to offer students a world-class educational experience according to a recently released progress report.

This evening, TDSB trustees received the mid-year progress report on the Years of Action Plan introduced last fall.

 

The success of the Years of Action Plan will be determined by the success of students. That success is demonstrated by the TDSB’s latest graduation rate. In 2013, 83% of students graduated high school — an increase of 3% from the previous year.

 

The Board has seen numerous other accomplishments as outlined in the mid-year progress report including the introduction of the TDSB Children & Youth Mental Health and Well-Being Strategy, the installation of additional Wi-Fi connectivity in schools and the hiring of learning coaches to support student achievement in math.

 

Trustees also voted this evening to reaffirm the TDSB’s support of Pride Toronto and the diversity that it celebrates.

 

Quick Facts 

  • By providing targeted supports for at-risk students, re-engaging early school leavers, expanding partnership opportunities with college, university, government and community agencies, the TDSB is able to connect students with the right programs and supports to help students graduate from high school.
  • Since the TDSB began tracking graduation rates in 2000, there has been a 14% increase (69% to 83%).
  • The 83% graduation rate is for the 2008-2013 cohort of students. To study graduation rates, the TDSB follows a group of Grade 9 students over five years — the time it takes most Ontario students to complete high school. 
 

“The results of the mid-year report clearly show that the TDSB is making good progress in the areas that directly affect students and their well-being.”

 

- Chris Bolton, Chair, TDSB

 

“I’m pleased to be able to say that TDSB students are graduating at a rate higher than we’ve ever seen before. With targeted supports, we can continue this upward momentum.”

- Donna Quan, Director, TDSB
