Buildings

I believe in constructing new schools as population warrants and in restoring school buildings by providing adequate staffing and capital, so that all schools will be safe, clean and well-maintained.

PLAN OF ACTION

  • Ensure our schools are clean and healthy atmospheres.
  • Advocate for changes to the provincial policy on Education Development Charges (EDC's).
  • Reducing the board's capital repair backlog by 1/3 using Education Development Charges.
  • Conduct a community-audit, inspired by the Jane's Walk method, in each school with parents, school staff, administrators, and the Superintendent as soon as I am elected and use the priorities identified as a plan of action for my term.
  • Champion more transparency by requesting a searchable database be implemented on the TDSB's website, inspired by Open Data Toronto and the Toronto Star's Project School Work.
