Provincial Consultations - Education Reform

October 24, 2018

Province of Ontario logoAs shared in the Deputy Minister's letter on September 28, the government launched the first phase of provincial consultation on education reform.

The online submission form seeks feedback from interested individuals, organizations, and groups on any of the consultation topics. We have received steady and ongoing feedback through the submission form and through fortheparents@ontario.ca, and are encouraged by the thoroughness of the content provided.

The next phase of the consultation will take place through scheduled Telephone Town Hall sessions across the province. I encourage you to share the following opportunity with your staff, students, school councils, local agencies, Indigenous partners and community members.

  • October 24: 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
  • October 30: 8:30 – 10:00 p.m. (French)
  • November 2: 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m

  • November 22: 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m

 

Individuals should visit the Telephone Town Hall section of the consultation website. 

If you have pre-registered by 4:00PM EST the day before, you will receive a phone call at the time of the session. If you are unable to pre-register, you will still be able to participate by dialing into the-toll free number posted in the registration section. We encourage anyone in your region to participate.

Information (including upcoming Telephone Town Hall sessions) will continue be shared at www.fortheparents.ca.  Thank you for your partnership in this important work.

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
