The Research and Development (R&D) Department is a central source of information for the TDSB as well as community, academic, and government partners. The department is a leader in public education research and evaluation work locally, nationally, and internationally.
Our mission is to collect, build, and mobilize evidence, information, and knowledge for the TDSB to support the needs of students, schools, parents, and the community. By linking people, improving system capacity and sharing information, the R&D Department supports a number of essential areas within the TDSB.
Information about students and our communities helps the Board and its schools to make informed decisions to enhance achievement, equity, and well-being.
