"It is my pleasure to share this document with you. I believe it reflects the Vision of the Board of Trustees and the DPCDSB’s ongoing focus on meeting this vision in alignment with our Multi-Year Strategic Plan and our inherent commitment to Equity and Inclusive Education.
These highlights are representative examples of how we have partnered with family and church to provide a Catholic Education which develops the spiritual, intellectual, aesthetic, emotional, social and physical capabilities of each individual.
My profound gratitude goes out to our faculty and staff, administrators, senior management, trustees, parish priests, parents/guardians, students, unions and associations and our many other community partners for all they do in helping us deliver a quality Catholic education to the thousands of students in our care."
Blessings to you all.

Our commitment to this work continues with the support of the senior management team and the Board of Trustees.
Fundamental to Catholic education is the Church's Catholic Social Teaching. Solidarity is one of the foundational principles of that teaching. We all have a duty to stand in solidarity with the Black community. We are inextricably linked in our humanity, and when one member of our community suffers, we all suffer.
Following are some tips for students and parents/guardians, as well as links to resources and supports that are available both online and in the community. We share these with you to assist families and to support students.
The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB) looks to our regional, provincial and federal health authorities for direction on public health matters and is in close contact with these authorities, as we monitor this health issue.
To help educate Ontarians about the novel coronavirus, Covid-19 how they can protect themselves and what to do if they suspect they may be at risk, the province has launched a dedicated webpage.
Also, follow @DPCDSBSchools on Twitter and, if you are a DPCDSB parent/guardian, please ensure that you have provided your child's school with your email address in order to receive information bulletins and other important information directly from the DPCDSB.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR PARENTS/GUARDIANS REGARDING POSTPONEMENT OF GRADE 9 EQAO MATHEMATICS ASSESSMENT
The Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) is an independent, arm’s length agency of the provincial government that provides parents, teachers, and the public with reliable information about student achievement. EQAO also makes recommendations for improvement which educators, parents, policy makers and others in the education community use to improve learning and teaching.
The EQAO assessments are based on the expectations outlined in The Ontario Curriculum. These assessments provide quality information on the achievement of students and add to the classroom assessment information teachers gather about individual students during the school year.
