Message from the Board Chair


​October 26, 2018

Yesterday we received notice from Trustee-elect Elizabeth Terrell-Tracy indicating her intention to withdraw from the position of trustee for East Gwillimbury and Whitchurch-Stouffville. Today, Elizabeth Terrell-Tracy has indicated that she is reconsidering her decision to withdraw from the position of trustee and will not be filing a disclaimer to the right of office with the Clerk of the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville. The election of a trustee to a school board is a democratic process determined by the votes cast by qualified electors during an election conducted in accordance with the Municipal Elections Act.
As we look forward to welcoming new trustees in December, we remain dedicated to the Mission, Vision and Values of our Board. The Board of Trustees, composed of 12 individually elected trustees, acts as a whole to make decisions about public education in York Region. We will continue to be guided by the four priorities established in our Multi-Year Strategic Plan, including:
        Fostering Well-Being and Mental Health
        Building Collaborative Relationships
        Championing Equity and Inclusivity
        Empowering Ethical Leadership
A robust orientation program has been developed for our 2018-2022 Board of Trustees, who will receive training on topics including ethical leadership and integrity, human rights, equity, customer service and dispute resolution.
York Region District School Board is strongly committed to creating and maintaining learning and working environments where all students, staff, families and community members feel safe, welcome, valued and respected. We look forward to working with the incoming Board of Trustees to continue to create conditions in our schools that enable all of our students to reach their full potential.

Corrie McBain
Chair of the Board
