TCDSB is committed to improving literacy outcomes for all students. Evidence

based strategies support the development of foundational literacy skills as well

as literacy skills for the 21st century. We emphasize and nurture​:

  • Capable and competent readers and writers

  • A life-long love of reading and writing

  • Confident communicators who are able to express their thinking and ideas in a variety of ways

  • Readers who are able to make meaning and think critically about increasingly complex texts

  • Informed and active global citizens who engage with real world problems and collaborate with others

  • Community members who share their unique gifts, talents and God given potential


Literacy instruction supports the development of the Catholic Graduate Expectations and is grounded in the Ontario curriculum expectations. Ministry and board resources support this work, alongside Growing Success and TCDSB equity and inclusive education principles.
