From Cathy Dandy-
Earlier this week, the TDSB launched what will be the largest consultations of its kind in Board history. The consultations mark the beginning of a conversation about the changes that are needed to meet the future needs of students and will help form the TDSB’s new Kindergarten to Grade 12 strategy. This work dovetails nicely with the work that I am doing on integrated public programs and services, repurposing school space and serving the broader community.
From historical gaps in programming, to the use of technology in the classroom, to ensuring our students have what they need to be successful, the community will help shape the future and bridge the gap between today’s education and the future needs of schools and learning.
The feedback received from the community will shape the plan that will drive future programming, capital priorities, and budget decisions. The plan will ensure that schools have the right programs to support students as they transition from TDSB schools to upcoming learning choices, careers and life as responsible, caring citizens.
In order to reach the widest number Toronto-Danforth TDSB community members, Mike Gallagher and I have decided to consolidate our upcoming Ward 15 Parent Council meeting with the East End Consultation at 7pm on Wednesday, November 7 at Danforth Collegiate and Technical Institute. This will offer us the opportunity to discuss how we’d like to address these issues in our own schools and community. We hope you will join us in this important discussion!
