New Frankland Parent Group on Facebook

Have you joined our brand-new Frankland parent group yet? Answering a few simple questions will get you verified as a Frankland parent and allow you to join and connect with fellow parents.

The group is private, meaning that only members can read your posts. It co-exists with our previously existing Frankland Facebook page which we continue to use to inform parents on behalf of the council and the school. The group is meant to be a place where parents can talk to each other, ask and answer questions, connect, inform and share resources with each other.

Let’s stay connected in this complicated time!

Survey Results on E-learning

Recently, at the direction of the Board, the TDSB surveyed a random sample of parents/guardians and students, and all secondary school teachers, to better understand their views and level of support for the Government of Ontario’s plan for mandatory e-learning for all secondary students. The TDSB Pulse Results are now in to show that most students, parents/guardians and secondary school teachers do not support the government’s plan to make e-learning a mandatory requirement for graduation, nor do they believe that it will benefit students. You can read and learn more about the results and read the Chair’s letter to the Minister:

Support Teachers at Queen’s Park!

 

Tomorrow is going to be a critical day for teachers, parents and students. It’s a day when the entire legislature is in session and will hear thousands of voices outside Queen’s Park in solidarity to oppose the proposal of massive cuts to education in this province. If you are planning on being at Queen’s Park tomorrow and you wish to join with our teachers from Frankland, they are meeting at 9:45am by the Firefighters’ Monument (see map). If you are arriving a bit later, Frankland teachers will be in the Ward 15 area for the duration of the rally (also see map) Bring your ENERGY, bring your VOICE and remember that every single board in the entire province will be out tomorrow. This has not happened in over 20 years!
