Trustee Committees

TDSB Trustees meet at least nine times during the year for regular meetings of all trustees. There are also three standing committees and one permanent committee that meet and present reports at the regular Board meetings.

Members of the public are invited to bring forward issues and concerns to the appropriate standing committee through the delegation process.  The delegation procedure helps manage this process and ensures a fair and equal forum. Learn more about how you can make a delegation.
