As the trustee for our community of schools I regularly hold events that share information and provide opportunities for active parents to learn and share from each other. These events are called Ward Forums. This school year there will be number of Ward Forums held for TDSB Ward 9. The dates, topics and locations will be listed below. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ward Forums will be held virtually, using Zoom. Childcare and light refreshments are provided at all in-person Ward Forums. Sign up to receive email updates
Ward 8 and 9 School/Student Councils, Parents/Caregivers, Community Members, and School Staff, please join us for a special joint ward forum:
School Building in Toronto: Where Are We Now?
Monday, May 31, 2021 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
As communities continue to grow and intensify, accommodation pressures continue to emerge at local public schools when faced with increasing enrolment. Information on updated enrolment and demographic information and the impact of residential intensification on local schools will be shared. Staff will speak to how the studies in the Board’s Long-Term Program and Accommodation Strategy and Secondary School Review will mitigate these challenges and the trustees will speak to our advocacy to the provincial government to address our capital needs. With special guests Andrew Gowdy, System Planning Officer and Daniel Castaldo, Senior Manager, Planning.
