TDSB Expands Itinerant Music Instructors (IMIs) to More Schools

Tuesday, December 24, 2019
Categories: News Releases, Happenings @ TDSB

Starting this school year, the TDSB has expanded its IMI enrichment program to include 17 new schools. As a result of this expansion, more than 1,200 new students will have access to the program through 1,600 IMI hours.

The expansion of the program is the result of a review of the distribution of IMI hours which found that some schools had a disproportionately high allocation of hours, while others had none.

The IMI program is an enhanced program and the TDSB is one of the few school boards in the GTA that funds IMIs. IMIs support but do not replace elementary teachers who deliver the arts component of the provincially mandated curriculum.

The new IMI hours will support strings at nine schools, band at four schools and steel pan at four schools. The schools that will receive the additional music supports are:

  • Silverthorn CS
  • Fairbank PS
  • Rawlinson CS
  • FH Miller PS
  • Weston Memorial PS
  • King George PS
  • Humewood CS
  • Highland MS
  • Derrydown PS
  • Humberwood Downs JMA
  • Oakdale Park MS
  • Tecumseh Sr. PS
  • Elia MS
  • Lawrence Heights MS
  • John G Diefenbaker PS
  • Bliss Carman MS
  • Fleming PS
