Know Your Worth Conference School Announcement
Empowerment, Excellence and Resistance. Three words to describe the focus and purpose of this year’s Know Your Worth Conference being held on February 27th, 2021. Know Your Worth is a yearly conference held in February, inviting Black students across the TDSB to share and learn from each other in a safe space, led by Black educators, activists, artists and professionals in Toronto and the GTA. This school year, we are going digital; with web conferences, film screenings, open dialogues and even a student talent show. If you are interested in participating this year, please ask your teacher where you can find the registration Google form, as well as the talent show sign-up coming soon. Follow us on Instagram @knowyourworthconference for more regular updates. Come to learn how to advocate for ourselves, rediscover the importance of self-love, gain tools to help you in your future, and of course to spread joy, because, Black joy IS an act of resistance. See you on February 27th!

Our School Improvement Plan (SIP)
Our SIP is a living document and therefore can change with the accomplishment of an outcome, new initiatives, input, and concerns. Every school must have a SIP for the following areas: Equity (focused on staff improvement to deliver best practices to our students), Achievement, and Wellness.
Using the admissions data from the past three years, staff will work collaboratively to remove systemic barriers and increase the equity of access for black, indigenous, female, and in-area students to our specialized program.
Educators will use census data and student voice to support student well-being by:
- Providing mental health PD for staff
- Reintroducing Grade 9 student orientation
- Establishing town hall meetings --space for students to share their thoughts
- Increasing assessment for learning prior to assessment of learning
Teachers will develop practices and strategies that support a growth mindset and build resilience through:
- Culturally responsive and relevant pedagogy
- Descriptive and regular feedback
- Opportunities for remediation
- Innovative and varied approaches to assessment
