Parents as Partners

The Parent Involvement Advisory Committee (PIAC), Special Education Advisory Committee (SEAC), Mental Health and Well-Being Parent Partnership Committee and Model Schools for Inner Cities' Parent Academies are partnering to bring one INCLUSIVE conference at Allstream Centre on Saturday, April 16, 2016

Addressing feedback from Parent Conferences in 2014-15, parents requested fewer conferences with a wider range of topics from a variety of TDSB groups. This conference aims to bring together many of the TDSB Advisory Committees, that have parent and community members, to guide, inform and present the topics in a workshop format. Advisory Committees bring parent and community voice to the Board and through this conference we hope to foster relationships between these TDSB Advisory Committees and the families they represent.

The expected outcome of the conference will be to reinforce the commitment of leaders and practitioners in schools and communities, to continue to build on existing exemplary school board and school practices and to establish new networks in order to close achievement and opportunity gaps, and to ensure higher levels of success for all students.

Registration must be completed in advance of the conference
