Letter to Parents from TDSB Director Quan

Here is a copy of a recent letter from TDSB Director Quan.  We already distributed the letter via email and a hard copy will go home in backpacks the week of November 9.  The letter provides an update about the status of Elementary Progress Reports and Parent-Teacher interviews.

Progress Reports Update from Director Quan - (Nov. 6)

Yonge-Eglinton Review Update

The first public meeting for the Yonge-Eglinton Review will take place on Tuesday, October 20th at 7:00 p.m. at Hodgson Sr. PS (282 Davisville Avenue). For those unable to attend this meeting, the same presentation will occur on Tuesday, October 27th at 7:00 p.m. at Forest Hill CI (730 Eglinton Avenue West). These meetings will give parents, guardians, and community members an opportunity to review, provide feedback, and ask questions about a number of potential program and accommodation solutions that are being examined by the Program Area Review Team (PART) to cope with enrolment pressures in the Yonge-Eglinton area.

The Program Area Review Team will be putting forth the following model for your feedback at these meetings:

In 2016:
  • Redirecting the current shared attendance area between Eglinton Jr. PS and Northlea E & MS to Northlea E & MS
  • Reducing Forest Hill Jr. and Sr. PS’ Extended French grade 4 entry cohort to 1 class going forward so the program can remain at the school through to Grade 8
  • Re-aligning intermediate boundaries for Hodgson Sr. PS, Glenview Sr. PS, and Forest Hill Jr. & Sr. PS
  • Planning for the transition of programming at Hodgson Sr. PS to become a middle school with the addition of Grade 6s in 2017
In 2017:        
  • Changing the grade structures at Eglinton Jr. PS (JK-5 English track and Grades 4-5 Extended French), Davisville Jr. PS (JK-5 English track, no change to French Immersion program), Maurice Cody Jr. PS (JK-5 English track), and Oriole Park Jr. PS (JK-5 English track)
  • Changing the grade structure at Hodgson Sr. PS to Grade 6-8

In 2020:
  • Assuming Davisville Jr. PS’ replacement building is complete, Grade 6 English track cohort will remain at Davisville Jr. PS from 2020 onward, feeding into Hodgson Sr. PS at Grade 7 (reversal of grade change pending space pressures at both schools at that time).
In 2022:
  • Changing an attendance area boundary between Eglinton Jr. PS and Maurice Cody Jr. PS (contingent on there being space available at Maurice Cody Jr. PS and continued space pressures at Eglinton Jr. PS)

A more detailed analysis of this model (as well as materials provided at all working meetings) can be found on the TDSB's Strategy and Planning website 

From the drop-down menu, select: Program Area Reviews – 2015 – Yonge-Eglinton Review.  A document containing answers to “Frequently Asked Questions” regarding this review can also be found on the website, under “Helpful Information”.  The Program Area Review Team`s recommendations will be shared at a final meeting on Tuesday, November 17th at 7:00 p.m. at Hodgson Sr. PS.

Program Area Review Team Information

The TDSB’s Long-Term Program and Accommodation Strategy (LTPAS) is a 10 year plan that includes 198 studies to address and accommodate the various needs of schools throughout the Board.  

The LTPAS includes studies for schools in the Yonge-Eglinton area. As part of this process, a Program Area Review Team (PART) has been created to consider options for addressing the needs of this area.

The PART will be hosting public meetings on October 20 (at Hodgson), October 27 (at Forest Hill Collegiate) and November 17 (at Hodgson).

Hodgson's Schedule

We follow a 10 day cycle, rather than a Monday to Friday cycle, which likely explains why everyone asks, "What day is it today?"  We have six 50 minute periods each day, with periods 1, 2 & 3 before lunch and periods 4, 5, & 6 after lunch. Just to make things a little more complicated, we have 2 minutes of transition time between periods to allow students and teachers to get from one class to another.

Here is our daily schedule:
8:55: Student Entry
9:00-9:50: Period 1
9:52-10:42: Period 2
10:44-11:34: Period 3
11:34-12:30: Lunch recess
12:30: Student Entry
12:35-1:25: Period 4
1:27-2:17: Period 5
2:19-3:09: Period 6
3:09: Dismissal
4:00: School day ends
