At the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB), we value relationships and recognize that student success and well-being are reflective of the healthy and vibrant partnerships we hold with parents, staff, and community members.
We are committed to effective public participation that builds understanding, engages stakeholders in matters that affect them, and ultimately improves decision-making. Learn more in our policy on Community Engagement and Public Consultation.
Throughout the school year, HCDSB provides a number of opportunities for stakeholders to provide feedback. Parents, staff and members of our community are encouraged to share their thoughts by responding to surveys, attending public information sessions, and participating on committees.
