On October 27, the TDSB announced its renewed approach to equity to improve support for all students. According to the plan, the new approach focuses on classrooms, schools, and local communities.
What is equity? For the TDSB, it’s providing each and every student with the conditions that support achievement and well-being. It is about supporting not only the students who are falling behind, but raising the bar for all students.
The TDSB serves more than 240,000 students who bring a variety of experiences and perspectives, and the Board states that it is essential that students see themselves reflected in their schools and their learning. According to the Board, the equity action plan “provides focus and ensures that the work we are doing at the system level has a direct impact in classrooms.”
