It has been a busy and productive year at the TDSB. We are incredibly proud of the tremendous work of our students and the many ways that staff, parents and community members came together to support student achievement.
This year, we celebrated the highest graduation rate ever
of students – 85 per cent – a number that highlights the efforts we have made to connect students with the right programs and supports.
To further this work, we also began laying the groundwork for Learning Centres
, which will be a reality in September. For parents, these Centres will help identify and better respond to your child’s learning needs, improve our communication with you and help us resolve issues in a timelier manner.
In addition, the Ministry of Education announced this week that the TDSB will receive $257 million in new funding for school renewal for 2015-16 and 2016-17. The funding will be used to repair roofs, modernize electrical and plumbing systems, as well as to improve visible elements such as flooring, walls, ceilings, playing fields and more in many schools.

TDSB Update will resume in the fall. We hope you find this issue informative and wish you all a safe and enjoyable summer!
