Communication Guidelines for Parents & Staff

As partners with parents and guardians in the education of our students, the WCDSB’s school staffs, the senior team and the Board of Trustees are always interested in receiving information and feedback from the community.

It keeps us in touch with day-to-day life in our schools, and helps us anticipate and deal quickly and effectively with any questions or concerns you may have concerning your child’s education.

Since 1999, the school board has operated using a very straightforward, transparent and successful set of Communication Guidelines for Parents & Staff. These easy-to-follow steps are in place to help parents / guardians resolve questions or concerns quickly, right there at school, where the overwhelming majority of issues are resolved.

The guidelines are very simple:

  1. If you have a question or concern involving your child, you should always first speak directly to the child’s teacher.
  2. If the issue remains unresolved, you should next speak to the school Principal.
  3. If the issue continues to be unresolved, you should speak to the Superintendent of Learning for that school.

Our school is already off and running to a fantastic start!

We’re looking forward to a #WCDSBAwesome 2019-2020 school year — and we thank you sincerely for your ongoing support and cooperation as we continue being #HeartOfTheCommunity and #calledtobelong
