Chris Moise is the Trustee for Ward 10 (Toronto Centre, University-Rosedale) of the Toronto District School Board. Since first being elected in 2016, Chris has led many initiatives, each designed to promote fairness and enhance equity for the thousands of students under his watch. Chris has championed initiatives such as the Enhancing Equity Task Force, and is an active member of the TDSB Black Student Achievement Community Advisory Committee. He has been a vocal advocate for the elimination of streaming, and was successful in the peaceful removal of SRO officers from “at-risk” schools in his ward. Chris recently worked with local City Councilors to allocate millions of dollars in resources towards the refurbishment of both Church Street Public School and Jesse Ketchum Public School as well as the revitalization of Jesse Ketchum Park.

Before being elected to the TDSB, Chris was a Counsellor at St. Mike’s Hospital. For the past 14 years, Chris has owned and operated a small pet supply business in Toronto.

The first few weeks of school have been hectic, stressful, and frustrating for parents/guardians, students, and staff at the TDSB. As you may know, over the summer staff and trustees worked hard to come up with solid plans that ensured a safe and organized return to school. Doug Ford and his Provincial Government have caused these delays and shortfalls. I share your frustration and will continue to advocate for every family across our ward.

Returning to School on September 15

Over the last few weeks, many of you have reached out to express your concerns and frustration with the back-to-school plans. I share your concerns and frustration.

As Trustees we have been meeting weekly since June to plan for what back to school will look like. In partnership with Staff and Toronto Public Health, we have consistently pushed back on the Provincial Government's plans and advocated for the health and safety of all of our students and staff.

Unfortunately, our original plan to welcome every student and staff back in-person with reduced class sizes to accommodate physical distancing as recommended by Toronto Public Health was not approved by the Provincial Government.

Premier Doug Ford and Minister Stephen Leece have not been equal partners in this unprecedented time, they have provided no additional funding and have blocked all of our attempts to reduce class sizes in all of our schools. We are doing the best we can with the financial constraints we are under.
