Ward 7 update

Trustee Irene Atkinson has invited the Minister of Education Laurel Broten to a meeting (date to be determined) with Ward 7 Council where parents will be invited to attend and ask questions and discuss concerns we have with public education in this province. Specifically, how the projected 108 million dollar cuts to the TDSB will affect our children.

Trustee Atkinson is asking concerned parents to send Minister Broten a letter encouraging her to set a date to meet with the Ward 7 Council. Your support is appreciated. Go to the School Council’s blog site for a template of the letter.

Education Committee

The minutes of the last education committee meeting are now posted online. Topics include: advocating for school resources, Parents Reaching Out grant, School Improvement Plan
