HAVE YOUR SAY: Community Consultation Survey

The following surveys are open until March 29th. Review staff draft policies and submit your feedback through the surveys provided.

Active and Sustainable School Transportation Charter  

PDSB is in the process of exploring the potential of establishing an Active and Sustainable School Transportation (ASST) Charter. This charter would represent a formal commitment to promoting active and sustainable transportation to and from Peel schools.  

An ASST Charter promotes active transportation, referring to human powered forms of transport and includes walking, cycling, skateboarding, scootering, using mobility devices as well as sustainable transportation, encouraging the use of school buses and public transportation. Through active modes of transportation, the charter prioritizes the physical and mental health of students, families, staff and the community while, outlining the principles, values, goals and commitments of a school regarding environmental sustainability.   

You are invited to share your perspectives by answering questions through an online survey, helping us to advance the Active and Sustainable School Transportation Charter initiative.  


Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting Policy  

This Assessment, Evaluation, and Reporting Policy outlines the expectations for the practices of teachers and administrators in the assessment, evaluation, and reporting of student learning and achievement in the Peel District School Board (PDSB). In addition, this Policy outlines the roles and responsibilities for teachers, administrators, students, and parents/guardians in relation to assessment and evaluation. 

This Policy is intended to ensure that assessment, evaluation, and reporting practices are fair, transparent, and equitable, and continue to disrupt systemic oppression, particularly for students who identify as Indigenous, Black, racialized, gender diverse, transgender, disabled, 2SLGBTQIA+, students receiving special education support, multilingual learners in English as a Second Language and English Literacy Development programs, and/or students from equity-deserving groups.

Regional Learning Choices Program Policy 

The Peel District School Board (PDSB) offers Regional Learning Choice Programs (RLCPs) which are specialized programs available to students via an application process within, and beyond, the home school boundary in the Peel region. These programs are meant to provide a range of options and pathways that meet students’ specific needs and interests. 

The revised RLCP policy aims to ensure that students have equitable opportunities and access to programs through transparent processes.  This Policy will act on the PDSB’s commitment to interrupting anti-Black racism, anti-Indigenous racism, and all other forms of oppression.

On January 22nd, 2024, PDSB announced that the PA Day originally scheduled for May 17th would be cancelled and rescheduled for Monday, April 8th, 2024 to coincide with the total solar eclipse. Click HERE to learn more about how Mississauga is expected to experience this, including an animation of what it will look like, and see this map below to see how much of the sun will be covered by the moon here in Peel.

Why did PDSB move the PA Day instead of keeping students in school?
Totality is expected around 3:19pm, but the partial eclipse begins at 2:04pm and ends at 4:31pm. With dismissals happening in this window it wouldn’t be possible to either keep students inside for the duration or ensure supervision for all students throughout this time. Looking at the sun without proper protection during an eclipse can cause permanent central vision loss, and so the decision was made to shift a previously scheduled PA Day to prevent students needing to travel home during this time.

NASA offers these tips to safely experience the eclipse.
