TDSB to Review School Names to Reflect Toronto’s Diversity

The Toronto District School Board has approved a motion that will lead to a city-wide review of school names to better reflect the diversity of the city.

The TDSB will form a special group that will inform the consultation process for the review of policy P047 and procedure PR592, Naming of Schools and Special Purpose Areas; propose amendments; and provide a proposal for a city-wide review of all TDSB school names by the end of June 2021. This group will be comprised of students, parents/guardians, educators, community members, appropriate qualified experts and individuals involved in anti-racism work.
