STUDENTS FIRST PLEDGE


I pledge to do all I can to ensure that the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) focuses on what is best for students, their parents, their communities and on providing quality public education for all students.

As Your Elected Trustee:


I Will Put Students First:

  • Every decision I make at the Board table will be informed by “what is best for students” I will actively collaborate with, and be available to, parents and kids on the decisions that matter most to them, both at the Board table and in my community.
  • I will always listen to and respect the ideas that peer Trustees have to offer in order to come to the best decisions based on what is right rather than who is right.
  • In all of my open meetings with parents, I will do all I can to support the development of their abilities to be effective and informed advocates for their children. I will be informed by the notion that, as students become more independent, they need to become self-advocates in school environments that make it easy for their views to be consistently respected, understood and acted on as appropriate.

I Will Bring Integrity, Honesty and Accountability Back to the TDSB:

  • I will act with the highest level of integrity, honesty and professionalism that being an elected official demands; and be a strong advocate for transparency and public declaration and action arising out of any potential or perceived conflicts of interest.
  • I will build bridges and do all I can to mend relationships both among Trustees and between Trustees and staff informed by an unswerving belief that we must create something better and bigger than the sum of our own contributions to ensure the positive change our students need and our communities deserve.
  • I will fully support the idea of an Ombudsman for the largest school board in Canada to ensure the highest standards and professionalism in the administration of the TDSB.

I Will Invest in Students, Respect the Public Purse:

  • I will commit to the simple idea that TDSB resources should be used in the best interests of our students and that transparency about the use of all public resources is critical.
  • In aid of creating the best possible public education system I will work towards a renewed and transparent funding formula for the TDSB.
  • I will post my detailed expenses online and advocate for all Trustees to do the same as a matter of Board policy.
