Board of Trustees responds to open letter from MPPs - Peel PC Caucus

​May 17, 2019

Members of Provincial Parliament
Peel Region – PC Caucus
Ministry of Education
13th floor, Mowat Block
900 Bay Street, Toronto, ON  M7A 1L2

Dear Members of Provincial Parliament, Peel, PC Caucus:

We are in receipt of your open letter to all directors of education, trustees and Peel residents, dated May 17, 2019. Thank you for reaching out to us and for your stated commitment to working together to protect and enhance the public education system. As always, we welcome the opportunity to meet with you face-to-face to share our concerns so that you can better understand the on-the-ground impact of recent Ministry of Education decisions on Peel District School Board students.

We understand the government’s focus on restoring fiscal sustainability for the people of Ontario. But, we cannot stand by as the province makes changes that affect students without offering factual accounts of what these changes mean at the micro-level—to students, classrooms and schools across Peel Region.

   ​here: June 2019 Exam Instructions for Students Revised.pdf

  • In-class final evaluations/performance tasks may take place during the last few weeks of the semester prior to formal final evaluations. Attendance is very critical throughout the semester and even more so near the end for students to demonstrate understanding of the course concepts and big ideas.
  • Parents/students should not schedule vacations or other activities during these times. To protect the integrity and confidentiality of final evaluations, students must be in attendance at school for final evaluations.

Every year, students arrive late for a final evaluation.  When this happens, no extra time is given to complete the evaluation task.  If you arrive late, you should report directly to the assigned room. 

​MAKE CERTAIN YOU KNOW THE DATE, TIME, AND LOCATION OF EACH OF YOUR FINAL EVALUATIONS.
