Mission: Disciples of Christ, nurturing mind, body and soul to the fullness of life.

Full funding rights for Catholic education was achieved by 1984.
May we always be mindful of the privilege it is to have our Catholic Education System.
May we appreciate the work of many who advocated on our behalf and for our children.
May we never grow complacent towards our publicly funded Catholic education.
The Director of Education is required by the Ministry of Education to produce an annual report to the community that outlines how the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB) has met the goals of its Multi-Year Strategic Plan, as well as an account of how it has met the Ministry’s goals on Equity and Inclusivity, over the past year.
Highlighted in the 2021 - 2022 report are representative examples of how DPCDSB strived to provide a Catholic Education which develops the spiritual, intellectual, aesthetic, emotional, social, and physical capabilities of each individual. 2021-2022 was another year in which DPCDSB operated in a COVID-19 pandemic environment. DPCDSB is committed to a Catholic learning environment that is informed by the principles of acceptance, support and inclusion of all learners. Rooted in the Catholic understanding of the inherent human dignity of all persons, equity and inclusion are reflected in our system approach and supporting policies.
In the interest of environmental stewardship, this document is posted on the DPCDSB website, and its availability has been broadly communicated to the community.

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 DPCDSB Black Community Advisory Council (BCAC) plays an active role in reviewing, advising, and making recommendations to the Board of Trustees on strategies to identify and dismantle anti-Black racism within all educational spaces. The council works towards creating equitable outcomes with a commitment to the implementation of policy, practice, and pedagogy that is aimed at supporting student achievement and eliminating the barriers faced by Black students. As part of this commitment, the focus is to confront and dismantle anti-Black racism in productive, cooperative, and effective ways that offer real solutions and are supported through accountability measures. The council works in collaboration with DPCDSB to fulfill our shared vision to ensure that Black students thrive academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually.

The flu virus can spread easily when someone who has the flu coughs or sneezes, especially in a school setting. Prevention is key to success.
