It is the expectation that all grade 9 students will be present, in school, for the full day on Thursday.

Enhancing Equity Task Force

We are seeking parental involvement in this initiative.  The TDSB is hosting ward-specific sessions for school communities: staff, support staff, students, and parents.  This is an opportunity to bring a team from every school together to learn about equity, the work of the task force and to be trained to go back and facilitate a conversation about equity.  We will gather to establish a baseline on where our school is at, identify what programs and services are in place and develop strategies for the future.

The Ward 13 session will take place on Monday, May 15th, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at John Polanyi CI located at 640 Lawrence Avenue West.

Please contact me if you are interested in being part of St. Andrew’s JHS’ school team.
