Trustee Anu Sriskandarajah - Ward 22

Welcome to the Ward 22 webpage

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my Ward web page. Whether you are a student, parent or resident, as your elected representative for the TDSB, it is my role to advocate on your behalf. On the TDSB site, and on this page, you can stay informed on what’s happening at the Board, including policies under review, program updates and discussions around new initiatives to improve student success.

On this site, you can also learn more about ways you can get involved and participate in the education process, like attending Board meetings or checking out other volunteer opportunities. Education is a shared responsibility, and I welcome and encourage your participation in our public school system.  

A Message from Trustee Anu Sriskandarajah

As the newly elected Trustee for Ward 22, Scarborough - Rouge Park, I am pleased to share with you and continue the work of the Toronto District School Board’s Multi-Year Strategic Plan.

This plan is focused on, among other things, helping students earn high levels of achievement, reach their full potential and build stronger relationships between parents and their school communities. 

I encourage all parents to be involved in your child’s education and school life. It’s important! There are numerous ways you can get involved, such as taking part in your local school council, volunteering to coach sports or supervising field trips. To explore these opportunities, and others, visit www.tdsb.on.ca/Elementary-School/Get-Involved. There are also many supports and resources for parents.

TDSB is also interested in knowing what parents think of our schools and the education their child is receiving.

If you have not had a chance to review our 2017 Student and Parent Census Data, I invite you to do so. You will find overwhelming parental support for our public schools, with the vast majority of parents saying that their child enjoys school, and feels welcomed and respected. Students share similar views, especially in our elementary schools.

I want to keep working on the Board’s commitment to higher academic achievement, building relationships between parents, students and schools, and ensuring that our schools are safe, caring and welcoming places to teach and learn. I believe schools in Ward 22 are great placed to be. Let’s work to together to keep it this way.

I am interested in your views and perceptions of about our schools or your child’s education. I encourage you to visit my website from time to time to get useful information to help you navigate the school system or learn about Ward 22 school-community news. You can also access a number of Board and school services for parents at the TDSB’s parent portal including homework tips, school bus transportation, help for new-comers to Canada, mental health help for students and lots more.

Thank you,

Anu

Dear Community Members of Scarborough-Rouge Park,

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! I hope that you and your family had a safe and enjoyable summer.

As the elected public school board trustee for your community, my role is to advocate for you and your child, and to represent the needs of our students and families in the Toronto District School Board.

After more than two years of the pandemic, we are preparing to welcome students and staff to a more stable school year in September. While most COVID-19 measures have been lifted by the Government of Ontario, the health and safety of our school communities remains our priority. The TDSB will continue to monitor the pandemic and follow the guidance and direction from the Ministry of Education and public health officials as needed.

We know that school can be an exciting and overwhelming time – for both students and parents/guardians. To help you and your child have a great year, please visit www.tdsb.on.ca for information on the school year calendar, getting involved, as well as resources for homework and so much more. The Toronto District School Board is also here to support you and your family’s mental health and well-being needs. For a list of tools and resources, including those tailored for students and parents/guardians, please visit https://www.tdsb.on.ca/Mental-Health-Well-Being.

Lastly, I want to thank you in advance for your understanding, patience and partnership as we work together to welcome both students and staff back to school.
