TDSB Celebrates Local Government Week

Monday, October 16, 2017
Categories: Great Things, Happenings @ TDSB

Read a message from TDSB Chair Robin Pilkey about Local Government Week and the important role of Trustees in public education

From October 15-20, the Toronto District School Board, along with our partners at the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association, will be celebrating Local Government Week.

School board trustees are the oldest form of elected representation in Ontario. Since 1807, generations of community-minded citizens have made decisions on behalf of local, publicly-funded schools, building the foundation of our system today.

There are 22 TDSB Trustees who are elected during municipal elections to represent public school supporters in the City of Toronto. Our Trustees meet as a Board on a regular basis and are also part of organized standing committees.

Our Trustees work to ensure that all TDSB students realize their potential and succeed. They are advocates for education and are the voice of the public. Each Trustee represents one of our 22 wards. Each ward is a diverse community with unique needs, priorities and educational requirements, and Trustees represent their communities.

TDSB Trustees set our Board’s vision, establish policies, allocate resources, and set the goals that lay the foundation driving programs and operations. Collectively, they create our multi-year strategic plan for student achievement and well-being and recruit and monitor the performance of the Director of Education to ensure progress in meeting our goals.

Read TDSB Update for a summary of recent decisions made by the TDSB Board of Trustees and other important Board meeting updates.

The next Municipal and School Board Election occurs on Oct. 22, 2018. For more information on Local Government Week, please visit the OPSBA website.
