‘A.M.A.’ WITH DIRECTOR JOHN MALLOY AND NEW TORONTO-DANFORTH SUPERINTENDENTS
A.M.A. is short-form for Ask Me Anything. In this case, it’s an opportunity for you to come out and meet the new Director for Education, John Malloy, and the new superintendents for the schools in Ward 15 Toronto-Danforth.
Under Directory Malloy’s leadership the TDSB has undertaken a significant restructuring with the express goal of getting our school supports (superintendents, special education resources, learning coaches, tech support, etc.) closer to our schools and more in touch with our communities. One of the changes for us here in east Toronto is a slate of three new superintendents overseeing the 30+ schools in our ward: John Chasty, Lucy Gianotta and Mary Jane McNamara. These three people effectively oversee the work of our principals and so play a critical role in school success, student achievement, and well-being.
Parents in Toronto Danforth are never short on questions and never shy to raise their voices with opinions, concerns, suggestions, and yes, sometimes even kudos. Here is a chance for you to come out, ask questions, be heard, and learn more about the new “Learning Centre” model and what it means for your child, your school, your family.
I look forward to seeing you at this, our first Ward Forum of the 2016-2017 school year.
DATE: September 19, 2016
LOCATION: Wilkinson Public School, 53 Donlands (just north of Danforth)
Please help spread the word. I look forward to seeing you there.
Yours in community,
