Mission & Values
The Mission of Our School
In order to support the Board's mission, the mission of Ross Doan P.S. is to improve student learning by focusing on early literacy, the needs of English as a Second Language learners, and good citizenship.

The Mission of the York Region District School Board is “To advance student achievement and well-being through public education, which motivates learners, fosters inclusion, inspires innovation and builds community.”
Safe and Supportive Schools

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 included in the school's Code of Behaviour.

Staff carry 2-way walkie-talkies and wear fluorescent vests on outdoor supervision duty in order to provide an added measure of security for students at recess times, as well as before and after school. 

In addition, Ross Doan P.S. supports the development of character education in the York Region District School Board. Character Matters principles and attributes are visibly presented through posters, daily quotations and the use of agenda books in grade 3 and 4. These principles are infused in school culture through policy and procedurs reflected through the Behaviour Code, the Discipline policy, monthly school goals, classroom management and expectations regarding appropriate dress at school. Students receive recognition and behaviours are reinforced. All co-curricular activities both implicitly and explicitly promote character development. There are growth opportunities for students through leadership roles such as Hall Monitors, Bus Buddies, and the classroom Reading Buddy activities. There is also explicit recognition through special presentations selected to reflect these principles and attributes. ​
