Toronto District School Board


Thank you for visiting my Trustee Website. 

For those of you who have not met me yet, let me introduce myself. I am your local Ward 11 school trustee. It’s my task to be your link with the Toronto District School Board, which governs the public schools of this city. As your elected representative, I make decisions with the rest of the elected trustees on the Board and act as your advocate and ‘sounding board,’ should the need arise. I believe we all have a role to play to help our public schools thrive.

What does a trustee do? Enjoy this short video - TDSB Trustees.

I also bring important Board news to you, through a web page you might enjoy checking out. It has key information and helpful resources for navigating some of education’s trickier waters - like homework! You’ll find it at

This website is intended to support and encourage your direct participation in our public school system. Here you can learn about items of interest, opportunities to be involved such as the Ward 11 Forum, access up-to-date information or learn about school councils or read my weekly updates (via the links on the left-hand side of this page).

If you are unable to find the information you need, please feel free to contact Araz Hasserjian – TDSB Administrative Liaison who will be supporting me and will answer the Trustees shared line during office hours. Araz can also be reached directly at 416-397-3061 or via e-mail at

If you would like to stay regularly informed on what is happening at the Board, including meeting agendas, policies under review, program updates, and discussions around new initiatives to improve student success and well-being, you can read my weekly e-update; to receive it, click on the link at the top right of this page.

I am always looking to learn more about your local school successes, issues and priorities. If you have something to share or wish to speak with me directly, please do not hesitate to e-mail me at or call and leave a message at 416 395-TRUS (8787).

We may be the largest school board in the country, but it’s the relationships that make our schools feel like family. By getting involved, you’re supporting public education, and I look forward to working in partnership with you and your child’s school this year.
