Message From Our Trustee


I am pleased to welcome all of our students and families to the start of the 2018-2019 school year. This is an exciting time of year. I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer and is looking forward to the months ahead.

York Region District School Board is committed to advancing student achievement and well-being. The Trustees’ new Multi-Year Strategic Plan, developed based on feedback from the community, outlines four priorities that will guide this work: Foster Well-Being and Mental Health, Champion Equity and Inclusivity, Build Collaborative Relationships and Empower Ethical Leadership. Thank you to everyone who shared their thoughts.

Our schools are stronger when families are engaged. There are many different ways families can support their child’s learning and get involved in life at the school, and I hope that you find opportunities to get engaged.

I wish you all the best for the upcoming school year.​ 

Cynthia Cordova - Georgina

Message from the Chair
I’m pleased to share that at last night’s Board Meeting, trustees voted for a by-election to fill the vacant Georgina Trustee position.
Having a by-election means the residents of Georgina have a fair and democratic process to select their representative. We wanted to ensure a fair and transparent process and that’s why we held a community consultation to ensure community concerns were heard.
I want to thank everyone who shared their thoughts and feedback on the replacement process.  A number of people attended information sessions in Keswick and Sutton, and also provided feedback through social media and by contacting us directly.
Following yesterday’s meeting, Board staff members will contact the Town of Georgina to initiate the process for a by-election. The Town will coordinate the by-election in accordance with the Municipal Elections Act. Once dates, locations and other relevant information have been determined, that information will be available for voters. The Board website will continue to be updated as information becomes available.

For residents interested in running for the position or learning more about the role of Trustees, I encourage you to look at the information available on our website.
