Quick Facts

·       John Malloy has held the role of TDSB Director of Education since January 2016.


"John has been an exceptional, caring and effective leader. When he came to this Board, we were in a very different position than we are today and after many years of turmoil we were ready for a fresh start, one that John provided. Thanks to John’s leadership, tireless work, dedication, and willingness to have hard discussions — and help us as a board to make hard decisions — the TDSB is now seen as a model of excellence in equity and instruction in North America. John led the way for that success. John will be deeply missed and I know my trustee colleagues and all staff sincerely wish him the very best in his well-deserved retirement from the TDSB.”

- Robin Pilkey, Chair, TDSB
