Theme 3: Effective Use of Board Resources (Human, Financial and Physical)
Theme 4: Meeting Students’ Needs in Schools of the Future
How can you get involved?

This is an opportunity to provide feedback to the TDSB which will be used to direct future programming, capital priorities and budget decisions.
