Teacher to Vice-Principal Additional Spring 2024 Process 

As per Section 1.1.3 of the Selection, Promotion and Placement Process for School Principals and Vice-Principals (PR705), the determination has been made that system needs will be met by running a Fall and Spring process for the 2023-24 school year.

2023/24 - Elementary and Secondary Vice-Principal to Principal Selection Process

To begin the process, qualified candidates who are interested in applying for the position of Principal are asked to complete and submit the “Notice of Intent to Apply” form. This form will provide notice to your Principal and Superintendent of your interest in applying for an administrative position. Once you submit the completed Notice of Intent to Apply Form, signed by your Principal and Superintendent, as outlined on the attached form, your Principal and Superintendent* will then work with you regarding next steps following the “Critical Steps in the Vice-Principal to Principal Selection Process”.

*Please note that External Candidates will be assigned a TDSB Superintendent of Education to assist with the process.

Materials related to the promotion process that identify and explain what potential candidates must consider can be accessed electronically:

All candidates considering submitting a Notice of Intent should carefully read the “Selection, Promotion and Placement Process for School Principals and Vice-Principals” (PR705) document to ensure they familiarize themselves with the process.

Please note that there will be dialogue dates throughout the year for those that are successful in reaching that stage of the process.
