Welcome to the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board!
Throughout our faith-based, inclusive and geographically diverse school board, we remain resolute in our commitment to academic excellence and the relentless pursuit of success for each and every student in our Catholic School Board. For our students to thrive and be successful in an ever changing world environment, we must ensure that all of our classrooms reflect the future-focused vision we have for the learner. A vision of the learner that is rooted in our faith and reflects an understanding of what it means to be literate in our modern context.
Always looking to connect with our staff and community, I invite you to follow me on Twitter @jodydirocco and also hope that you might take a moment to visit my blog , where I will engage in discussions and topics of interest to our Catholic system and to education in Ontario. I welcome your feedback and look forward to our continued service to our students from Kindergarten to Grade 12, as they develop into caring citizens who demonstrate their Faith in Action.
