WRDSB is continuing our core work of supporting the academic achievement and well-being of the students we serve, as we reimagine a public education system that truly provides equitable opportunities and outcomes for all.

Students are at the center of all decision-making for the Board of Trustees and we continue to work together with parents and caregivers as partners in their education to ensure student success.

Looking ahead to 2024, we will continue to work as dedicated advocates for all WRDSB students at the Board Table and beyond. Every student the WRDSB serves should have a voice in shaping the future of learning that supports their success.

Stories of success from our Strategic Plan
2023 gave us countless examples of students, staff, families and community members embracing the objectives of the WRDSB Strategic Plan. It’s a plan built with the wisdom and knowledge shared by more than 10,000 of those it serves. The results have seen students and families more engaged with their neighbourhood schools, students and staff working together to empower student leadership, and the skills students learn in the classroom making a positive difference in their own communities. Together, we are creating schools where all students are able to reach their full potential on their chosen pathway in learning and life.

We are transforming education to prepare students for success in the future. When we think about schools and learning, we imagine how reading and math can be part of a new education system. We understand that these subjects are essential for students’ learning. But, what if students had more say in how they meet expectations in subjects and curriculum? What if teachers were guides and collaborators in student learning, rather than instructors? At WRDSB, we are committed to Transforming Education.
AND EQUITY PLAN
In 2023, we saw the results of the first full school year implementation of the Board Improvement and Equity Plan (BIEP). The indicators showed growth in student achievement, particularly in the areas of literacy and numeracy.
The BIEP is one of the ways WRDSB reviews its progress and the outcomes of specific strategies to support student achievement and well-being in alignment with the Strategic Plan.
The four areas of the BIEP are:
Sovereignty, human rights and equity
Mental health, well-being and engagement
Pathways and transitions
