Do you have concerns about the new police check requirements for Parent Volunteers? If so, go to this meeting – see attached message from Cathy Dandy

Hi Everyone,

I hope you had a good long weekend!

This is a reminder that Ward Council is coming up on Tuesday, April 29It promises to be an interesting meeting, so I hope you will join us to find out more, and to have your say about the things that matter to you! We will have a special guest, and there will also be a discussion of a hot topic that affects all of our schools. 

Special Guest:

As a parent this is your opportunity to meet Donna Quan, Director of the TDSB, and find out more about the big picture of what’s happening in Toronto schools and the directions we’re heading. The Director will make a presentation about our strategic plan and will be available to respond to your questions and comments.

Discussion Topic:

You may have heard about ‘police reference checks’ in the news lately. We will be discussing the effects of criminal reference checks on the role of parent volunteers in schools. When should parents be obliged to get a reference check? Are they effective? Why are there such long wait times for the results to come back? Who should pay? Come out and express your view on this important subject.

Here are the meeting details:
