Staff to Review Enhancing Equity Task Force Report

Wednesday, December 13, 2017
Categories: News Releases

A full review of the recommendations of the Enhancing Equity Task Force will be conducted by TDSB senior staff, following a vote by Trustees this evening.

At the Board meeting, the Director of Education presented the 80-page report, which was developed by the Enhancing Equity Task Force following a year-long consultation with thousands of TDSB community members including students, staff and families.

The work of the Task Force brought to the surface the systemic barriers that many students are facing in the TDSB and highlighting – in many cases reinforcing – what areas we need to focus on.

The resulting recommendations, which were supported by extensive research and feedback, are proposed to help all students experience higher levels of achievement and success in school.

Following a closer examination of the recommendations, the Director of Education will present proposed next steps to the Planning and Priorities Committee on January 31, 2018. Community members will have the opportunity to share their thoughts as part of the committee process.

Quick Facts
• More than 7,000 people shared their voices and while the issues and feedback varied, the overriding theme was consistent: students need access to opportunities to succeed.

“We want our students to succeed and this report identifies a number of ways we can make changes that are necessary for some, and beneficial to everyone. This is important work and this decision demonstrates the Board’s continued commitment to equity and supporting all students.”
- Robin Pilkey, Chair, TDSB

“This report reflects the voices of our community. It’s important that we continue to listen and engage them as we work to better support students, especially those from the most marginalized communities. As we move forward, there will be further opportunities for feedback and dialogue to ensure that we are meeting the distinct needs of students while improving access and raising expectations.”
- John Malloy, Director, TDSB
