Toronto Catholic District School Board

UPDATE ON PROPOSED CHANGES
TO SECONDARY SCHOOL
ADMISSIONS POLICY

 

Message from the Director of Education


June 12, 2017
 
Dear Parents, Guardians and Members of the TCDSB Community:
 
We want to take this opportunity to thank all TCDSB parents, staff and stakeholders who participated in the community consultations on the proposed draft changes to the Secondary School Admissions Policy.
 
The response to the online survey and face to face consultations was overwhelming. The Board is also very appreciative of the feedback we received through numerous e-mail messages and letters containing hundreds of comments presenting local perspectives and offering suggestions regarding the proposed policy changes.
 
At the June 8, 2017 Corporate Services, Strategic Planning and Property Committee meeting, the Board of Trustees approved a motion directing Board staff to come back with a further Report at its October, 2017 meeting. The updated Report will contain an analysis of the additional feedback received from delegations at the meeting.
 
While there is a general appreciation that secondary school boundaries need to be considered to balance enrolments at all TCDSB secondary schools, more time is required to comprehensively analyze the enormous amount of new information submitted during all phases of the consultation process, and efforts will be made to engage a broader range of parents throughout all areas of the TCDSB.  The Board of Trustees will not be making any decisions until they can evaluate the information and analysis provided in the new Report.
 
As a result, NO changes have been made to the Secondary School Admissions Policy. The application process to TCDSB secondary schools will remain the same until further notice.
 
Should you have any questions, please contact the TCDSB Planning Department at: 416-222-8282 Ext 2084
 
Yours in Catholic Education,
          
Director of Education
