Durham District School Board
Ignite Learning
Parent and Community Engagement
in our Schools
The Durham District School Board is
committed to fostering student success by cultivating effective partnerships between our
school​s and our communities.

At the DDSB, we have a long tradition of working with all members of o​ur school communities. Research tells us that when families are engaged with their children’s life and learning at school, student achievement improves. In the DDSB, there are many ways that families can become involved with their children’s school and learning.

Our schools use websites and agendas to promote and inform families about classroom and school activities. These tools can help parents and guardians to engage in conversations with their children about their learning.

We welcome your involvement in our schools. As such, we encourage families to have open, productive communication with teachers and the school.

We also welcome and encourage families to become involved in School Community Councils (SCC), which provide a vital link between school, home and community. For more information on how to do so, please visit the School Community Council page on this website.
The SCC is a forum for parents, guardians and other members of the community to contribute to school life. We greatly value the input provided by SCCs at the DDSB.
For more information, please conta​ct the office of the Superintendent of Education/Ajax Schools/School Community Councils.
