How do I Access Inform​ation?

It’s easy to get information about the York Region District School Board. If you can’t find the information you want on our website here are some other ways of getting information:

  • Email your information request through the website
  • Phone the board at 905 727-3141
  • Visit the main Education Centre in person – 60 Wellington Street West, Aurora, Ontario, L4G 3H2

Occasionally, if an information request is particularly complex or sensitive, it may require a more formal process. In that case, you can request access to information by submitting a request citing the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Also, students, parents and guardians can request access to information held by the Board by contacting the Principal of the school their child attends. Please be aware that while an individual has access to their own personal information and general records, they do not have access to information about other individuals. While a student is under the age of 18 and is not living independently, the parent or guardian retains a right of access to their child’s information. The Principal will provide you with the information you request if you are legally entitled to receive a copy of it. If you are not granted access to it, you have the right to make a formal request for information under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

What is involved in mak​ing a request to access information?

You may make a request by completing a request form or by writing a letter or e-mail describing exactly what information you want. Completed requests must include a $5.00 application fee paid by cash, credit card or cheque payable to the York Region District School Board. Your request should be sent to the attention of:
