Parent Representative Participation in Vice-Principal Interviews

Parent Representative Participation in Vice-Principal Interviews

Dear Parent:

As you may be aware, The Toronto District School Board currently includes a Parent Representative on Vice-Principal Interview Committees (this is for teachers applying to become VPs). The Parent Involvement Advisory Committee strongly feels that parent voices in these interviews are important in building good relationships with administrators early on and in reflecting the importance of parent/community involvement/partnerships as integral components of a school administrator’s responsibilities.

This communication contains information about the upcoming Vice-Principal interviews, as well as an Expression of Interest Form to complete if you would like to participate as a Parent Representative.

The P/VP Process and Interview Training Session is scheduled for:

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

6:00 pm to 7:30 pm

5050 Yonge – Boardroom.

Attendance at this Training Session (or a previous session) is mandatory in order to participate as a Parent Representative on a Vice-Principal Interview Team either this year or in future years.

Principal/Vice-Principal interview dates are currently scheduled for:

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

All interviews are held at 1 Civic Centre Court (Burnhamthorpe and Hwy #427).

·Please hold all three dates until it has been determined which day(s) Vice-Principal interviews will be held.

·You will be informed by e-mail no later than the week prior to the scheduled date if you have been placed on an interview team or identified as an alternate interviewer for the day.

·You will likely not be scheduled for more than one of these dates. Depending on the number of interview teams scheduled, not all parent representatives may be required.

·The interview day begins with a team caucus at 8:00 am with the site coordinators. The last interview of the day will commence no later than 3:30 pm.

If you would like to participate in these interviews, please complete the form below or the Expression of Interest (attached) and return it ASAP.  If you cannot participate on any of the Principal/Vice-Principal interview dates currently scheduled, but are interested in being involved in future years, please still complete the form below and come to the Training Session.

Thank you in advance for your interest and support in this important process.
