Director of Education Lisa Millar appears in a
video outlining key components of the DDSB's commitment in the areas of equity, diversity and inclusiveness. Key highlights include:
The DDSB supports Education Minister Mitzie Hunter's announcement of the collection of racialized data to assist and inform school boards to improve outcomes and programs for racialized students.
Director Millar emphasizes that the demographic landscape of Durham Region has changed and is continuing to change: "Our communities, families and the students we serve represent a rich cultural diversity that reflects our community and the Durham District School Board. We need to continually evolve and improve our practices to support, enhance, celebrate and be responsive to the social and cultural realities of the students and families we serve.
"At the Durham District School Board, diversity is our strength; diversity is our future.
Join us on our journey."
