Welcome Back Letter

Dear Parent/Guardian,

For those of you who have not met me yet, let me introduce myself. I am your local school trustee. I am your link with the Toronto District School Board, which governs Toronto’s public schools.

As your appointed representative, I make decisions with the rest of the trustees on the Board and act as your advocate and ‘sounding board,’ should the need arise. I believe we all have a role to play to help our public schools thrive. What does a trustee do? Visit

We are, more than ever, focused on ensuring that all students have access to the programs, opportunities and supports needed to reach high levels of achievement and well-being. This priority is driven by our newly approved Multi-Year Strategic Plan, which outlines our mission, values and goals in support of student success. To read the full plan, visit

Your involvement in your child’s education and school life will contribute to their success. There are a number of ways you can get involved – to explore these opportunities please speak to your classroom teacher, School Council Chair or Principal or visit

As the new school year begins, you will find helpful resources for both parents and students here Information includes homework tips, transportation updates and supports for mental health, healthy living and anti-bullying. And on the reverse side of this letter, please find the school year calendar, the Parent Concern Protocol, TDSB social media accounts and contact information for both me and the Superintendent of Education.

We may be the largest school board in the country, but it’s the relationships that make our schools feel like family. By getting involved, you’re supporting public education, and I look forward to working in partnership with you and your child’s school this year.
