Toronto District School Board Equity in Education Community Forum
The Toronto District School Board is committed to creating equitable and inclusive schools that reflect our commitment to diversity and equal opportunity for all. We work to accommodate the needs of all students and remove barriers to their achievement.
The TDSB Equity Policy Advisory Committee is holding an Equity Community Forum on December 11, 2010. The goal is to improve our current practices in building equitable and inclusive schools through the sharing of ideas and strategies.
Parents, community members, staff and secondary students who wish to contribute to the TDSB's progress in this area are invited to attend. The forum will take place on Saturday December 11, 2010 at Northview Heights Secondary School and will focus on the following themes:
• Aboriginal Education
• Ability/Disability Awareness
• Newcomer Student Needs
• Culturally Responsive Teaching
• Human Rights in Education
• Employment Equity
• Parent and Community Role
• Leadership for Change
• Student Voice
