A message from Trustee Cathy Dandy
Dear Parents, Students, Educators and Residents,
Welcome to my website! As your trustee, I see myself as an advocate for you, our schools, our communities, and the well-being of our public education system. I also see myself as your link to the policies and pedagogy being discussed and implemented at the Toronto District School Board, and it is my goal to consistently provide you with clear and useful information.
I hope that this site will help the achievement of that goal. Here you can find information about board meetings, ideas about how to connect schools and communities, resources for issues like ESL and children's mental health, and a straightforward list of who to go to when you have a problem.
Creating and maintaining healthy, supportive schools for our children and youth as well as fostering strong school neighbourhoods involves the dynamic participation of the whole community. Please take a look around my site and share your ideas as we continue to work together for public schools that truly serve community needs.
