Policies for Comment
Policies and procedures govern the operation of the Board and our schools. To ensure they remain current, the Board reviews policies and procedures regularly. Feedback from staff and community members, including parents/guardians, is an important part of the review process. 


If you have any questions about this process, please contact Corporate Secretariat and Trustee Services.​

How do I share my comments? 

Questions about any Board policy and/or procedure should first be discussed with the principal or superintendent. 

Parents/guardians wishing to provide feedback on a policy and/or procedure should contact your school council.  Your input will be shared with the appropriate committee(s).   

Feedback should include:
  • the specific sections of the policy/procedure you would like to see addressed
  • the reason for your suggestions
  • specific, alternate wording
Feedback or questions about the review process can be sent to policy.committee@yrdsb.caDue dates for responses are outlined below.
