Curriculum and Co-Curricular Activities
As with each school in the York Region District School Board, Glad Park P.S. supports student learning through the curriculum standards set out by the Ontario Ministry of Education and many other co-curricular activities.
A focus on literacy: Professional development is provided for school staff by school Administrators, YRDSB consultants, and staff members.
Assessment and Evaluation: We are in phase three of the assessment and evaluation program for the Board.

Safe and Supportive Schools/Character Education/Equity Education:

Every student has the right to learn in a safe and supportive environment. The York Region District School Board has a Safe and Supportive Schools Policy and a defined procedure to implement the policy. Both the policy and procedure support the view that student discipline involves a continuum of support including prevention, intervention and appropriate consequences. The YRDSB remains committed to the inclusion of anti-racist and equity education in its policies and programs.
Safe Schools initiatives that are very important at Glad Park P.S. include:
  • bullying prevention programs
  • VIP Program
  • Kiss and Ride Traffic Program (being developed in 2003-04)
In addition, Glad Park P.S. supports the development of Character Education in the York Region District School Board. The following is an overview of the school's Character Education initiatives:
Character Education: Character Education is celebrated through monthly themes and daily announcements. Attributes of positive character traits are expected to permeate all interactions with staff/students and parents within the school. Stouffville is an area which will undergo the rapid growth and cultural changes that most of York Region has experienced. We work with all our students to ensure inclusivity and equity throughout Glad Park P.S.
