Education Week 2018

Friday -- Achievement in the TDSB

At the TDSB, we are committed to improving student achievement for each and every student and continuously raising expectations in every classroom. Today’s students need to be deep thinkers, problem solvers, creators, collaborators, leaders, global citizens, entrepreneurs, and communicators.

In elementary school, students develop the literacy and numeracy skills they need to succeed. And, while the learning that takes place in the classroom is very important, elementary school is truly an exciting time because of all the new experiences available beyond the classroom. Whether it’s taking part in after-school programs or participating in sports, there are countless ways for students to get involved in school life and make the most of their experience.

In high school, TDSB students have access to an incredible variety of schools, programs and courses. From specialized arts programs to technology and athletics, there is something for every student and can help you find the right path for a successful experience in high school and beyond. There are also many opportunities to get involved outside of the classroom, from leadership and volunteer activities to sports and clubs. Your high school experience is what you make of it and at the TDSB we provide the opportunity for each individual student to find and follow your passion.

Wednesday -- Mental Health and Well-Being at the TDSB 

Student mental health and well-being is an important part of student success and a priority at the TDSB.
 

Mental health impacts us all. Just as we all have physical health, we all have mental health. Our mental well-being includes our emotions, our thoughts and feelings, our ability to solve problems and overcome difficulties, our social connections, and our understanding of the world around us.
 

At school, feeling safe, engaged and included all contribute to having a positive sense of well-being. Students need our collective support to be healthy individuals and, the relationship that students have with each other and adults is an important part of that.


At the TDSB, we strive to develop optimism, self-confidence, resilience and a sense of belonging in our students. We need to promote positive mental health, safe and caring schools, healthy schools that understand the importance of physical health, nutrition, physical activity, and inclusive schools that are responsive to all as we celebrate the diversity in our communities.

Schools support mental health and well-being in different ways. It may be practicing yoga, doing daily mindful practices or encouraging kindness.

Tuesday -- Equity at the TDSB

Equity is one of the three main focuses of our work in the TDSB. We know that each and every student is capable of success. Our job is to ensure that all students have the access – the same access – to opportunities, learning, resources and tools. For the past two years, we have been busy making some significant changes including revising our Equity Policy, listening to our communities and supporting staff learning that will make a difference in the schools, classrooms and lives of students where it matters most.

Monday -- Welcome to Education Week!

Education Week is an opportunity for us to celebrate and highlight many of the great initiatives and programs underway across the TDSB that are helping students succeed.

And there is lots happening! Every week Director John Malloy visits schools and sees learning in action (You can too! Check out my site!). Watching students be curious about the world around them and asking questions is a key part of making learning relevant. And encouraging that curiosity and helping students lead their own learning is important.

To start the week, there is a lot all over our website that celebrates the work we do each day in support of our students whether it’s:

And go ahead and follow us on Twitter, too. That's where our schools turn to to highlight learning in and outside of the classroom. What great things are you doing? Follow and share online using #TDSBedweek and tagging @tdsb!
