Join the conversation about Equity in the TDSB

“We believe that equity of opportunity, and equity of access to our programs, services and resources are critical to the achievement of successful outcomes for all those whom we serve, and for those who serve our school system … The Board is therefore committed to ensuring that fairness, equity, and inclusion are essential principles of our school system and are integrated into all our policies, programs, operations, and practices.” -- TDSB Equity Foundation Statement

Our vision is for all students to succeed. It is critical that we provide safe and caring schools where students have the resources and tools to be successful.

We have done a lot of work to support our students, but still, not all students are doing as well in school as they should be. We need to change that.

We must take a more strategic and focused approach help those who aren’t reaching their potential, while also continuing to inspire, engage and raise the bar for all students.

We have looked at our past efforts, leveraged the expertise and experiences we have heard from our communities and have considered where we want to go and how we need to change to get there. The result is an Integrated Equity Framework Action Plan. This approach requires a shift in how we approach equity in the TDSB and we want to hear from you.

Your voice and opinion is an important part of this conversation. Please join the discussion and share with us your thoughts on how parents and schools can work together to improve the learning experience for students.
