The funding reductions present a fiscal challenge in working toward a balanced budget in alignment with our goals of student achievement and well-being. <a href="https&#58;//www3.dpcdsb.org/news/news-archives/information-ministry-of-educations-new-vision-for-education">Review information related to the announcement as well as the DPCDSB's Letter to the Community</a>.<br><br>The Education Act requires school boards to submit a balanced budget.

The program was first developed in Québec in the late 1960s, in response to demands from English-speaking parents who wanted their children to be fluent in both English and French. Today, over 100,000 students in Ontario are enrolled in French Immersion programs [1].Three general types of French Immersion programs can be offered&#58; early, middle and late. They may go by different names, depending on the school board in which they are offered. Dufferin-Peel’s Extended French program is an example of a middle French Immersion program, in which students first spend a significant portion of their day learning in the French language starting in Grade 5.?<br></p><p>This program offers an excellent opportunity for becoming functionally bilingual in later years. Over&#160;300,000 students are enrolled in Extended French or French Immersion annually across Canada.&#160;</p><p>Students in the Dufferin‐Peel French Immersion program attain a high level of proficiency in French at no cost to the student's English proficiency or achievement in other academic subjects, such as science and mathematics. Students in the French Immersion program receive at least 4,510 hours of instruction in French by the end of Grade 8 and can&#58;</p><ul><li>communicate effectively in French, by selecting the correct words and nuances, and adapting language in order to be understood;<br></li><li>understand radio, television, newspapers and books, with the occasional help of a dictionary;<br></li><li>demonstrate knowledge of the culture, society, customs, economy, government and institutions of a French‐speaking community;<br></li><li>function well in a French‐speaking community.?</li></ul><h4><br><strong>Why choose French Immersion?</strong></h4> <p><br>There are many academic, cultural and future career benefits associated with learning to communicate in another language. Learning a second language has positive effects on first-language skills and can help make the acquisition of other languages easier. Learning a second language can also help students develop appreciation and tolerance for other cultures. Learning a second language can also be an asset in a variety of career areas in the current global economy. French Immersion is an effective way to help students learn French as a second language so that they become bilingual. Many parents choose French Immersion for their children for this very reason. </p><p>How will French Immersion affect my child’s skills in English? Research has shown that French Immersion programs improve children’s French language skills without any negative impact to their English or first language skills. In the early years of French Immersion, some students may lag in English language skills, but this gap is temporary and usually disappears with the introduction of English language arts in later grades. In fact, a study of the Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) elementary assessment results indicated that Grade 3 students in French Immersion programs had similar levels of performance as their non-immersion peers, and that Grade 6 students in French Immersion actually out-performed students in the regular English program in both literacy and mathematics. [2]<br><br>Various ministry documents such as the <a href="http&#58;//edu.gov.on.ca/eng/amenagement/frameworkFLS.pdf">FSL Framework</a> confirm that the FSL programs are <strong>for all students</strong>. There are however many considerations and factors which help parent(s) and/or guardian(s) make an informed decision about the French Immersion program for the child. These are&#58;</p><ul><li>Enjoys and plays with language (rhyming and word games)</li><li>Listens effectively (i.e. retell or explain a story in sequence)</li><li>Displays strong communication skills (listening and speaking) in their mother tongue</li><li>Follows directions and instructions</li><li>Identifies and prints name, the alphabet and some words</li><li>Demonstrates an awareness of individual sounds and sound patterns</li><li>Cooperates with others and works /plays well in groups </li><li>Perseveres and makes an effort when responding to challenges</li><li>Looks for and acts on new ideas and opportunities</li><li>Demonstrates a willingness to take risks</li><li>Demonstrates curiosity and interest in learning</li><li>Approaches new tasks with a positive attitude</li><li>Regular attendance (known as a strong indicator for success)</li></ul><p>These qualities encourage good learning habits in all subject areas.<br><br><strong>How can I help my child in French Immersion?<br></strong><br>Many parents have a limited background in French or do not speak the language at all. Parents do not need to know any French to support their children in French Immersion. Instead, parents can give their children the most help by providing encouragement and positive support. They can also help by taking an interest in their children’s school work, and by setting aside a regular amount of time for homework.</p><p>For further information, parents can access the <a href="http&#58;//www.cpf.ca/">Canadian Parents for French website</a></p><p> <i></i><i>[1] <a href="http&#58;//www.cpf.ca/" target="_blank">Canadian Parents for French (Ontario.

Requests from legal guardians or other community members to provide services to students such as in-class or in-school private tutoring, lessons, observations, counselling, assessments, therapy and other interventions are considered a request for &quot;third party&quot; services. Provision of third party services within the school requires careful consideration of various factors&#58; purpose of the support, equity, liability to the Board, privacy and confidentiality, qualifications and professional standards of third party staff, informed consent, supervision, impact on educator time, school space, active collective agreements, and duplication or fragmentation of service. </p><p style="text-align&#58;left;">Collaborative relationships complement or enhance existing programs and services offered by the Board; they do not duplicate the services of Board staff. They are relationships of mutual respect in which participants share values, objectives, human resources, material and/or financial resources, programs, and/or roles and responsibilities in order to achieve desired learning outcomes for all students including students with diverse learning needs. </p><p style="text-align&#58;left;">When considering collaborative relationships in the areas of health and social services, the Board's practice is informed by PPM 149, <em>Protocol for Partnerships with</em> <em>External Agencies for Provision of Services by Regulated Health Professionals, Regulated Social Services Professionals and Paraprofessionals</em>. The following Board employees are health or social services professionals, or paraprofessionals, and are included within PPM 149&#58;</p><ul style="text-align&#58;left;"><li>Speech-language pathologists </li><li>Psychologists &amp; psychological associates</li><li>Social workers</li><li>Occupational therapists</li><li>Other professionals or paraprofessionals who are deemed by the Board to be essential for the delivery of programs and services for students with diverse learning needs, including but not limited to child and youth workers, behaviour analysts, communicative disorders assistants, psychoeducational consultants </li></ul><p style="text-align&#58;left;"><strong>Some types of health and social services are ineligible for collaborative relationships, including but not limited to&#58;</strong></p><ul style="text-align&#58;left;"><li>Services/supports that duplicate the services of Board professionals (PPM 149)</li><li>Services/supports that are governed by laws or interministerial agreements</li><li>Parent-initiated requests for services/supports that are retained and/or paid for by parents or legal guardians</li></ul><p style="text-align&#58;left;">Collaborative relationships for the provision of health and social service supports are mutually defined by the Board and external agencies through the Board's process, as documented in&#160;<a href="/Documents/DPCDSB%20collaborative%20relationships%20process.pdf">DPCDSB Collaborative Relationships Process.</a></p><p style="text-align&#58;left;">The first step to a

development; throughout the school day, a child must listen, understand and express ideas in a variety of situations.

In addition, students with communication problems may have difficulty expressing feelings and interpreting social situations.</p><p>Not all students with communication difficulties will experience problems in school.

A speech-language pathologist's practice is controlled in Ontario by the Regulated Health Professions Act and the Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Act. <br><br>In the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board children with special needs, including those with communication difficulties, are helped through a team approach. Parents, teachers and special services staff participate in planning and programming for students with speech and language difficulties. As a member of the special services team, the speech-language pathologist provides assistance to students with communication problems that may affect school performance.</p><p><strong>What is a communication problem?</strong></p><p>A communication problem is a persistent difficulty in the understanding and use of spoken or written language. Communication problems may affect individuals of all ages&#58; between five and ten percent of school aged children may experience some form of speech and language disorder.</p><p><strong>What is a language impairment?</strong></p><p>A language impairment can be a problem with receptive and or expressive language. Receptive language is the ability to understand someone else’s speech, gestures and writing. Expressive language is the ability to send a message by talking, writing or using symbols or gestures.</p><p><strong>What is a speech problem?</strong></p><p>A speech problem is often referred to an articulation disorder. An articulation disorder involves difficulties with the way sounds are formed and strung together, usually characterized by substituting one sound for another (wabbit for rabbit), omitting a sound (han for hand) or distorting a sound (shlip for sip). <br><br> Articulation problems involve 3-10% of the population. A history of severe articulation problems may relate to later spelling difficulties.</p><p><strong>What are other communication problems?</strong></p><p>Other communication problems involve speech and voice&#58; such disorders include stuttering and abnormal voice quality. Children with special disabilities such as hearing impairment, developmental and physical disabilities and autism often have very special communication needs. In addition, children who are unable to use speech as a means of communication may require augmentative or alternate forms of communication and may need special communication devices.</p><p><strong>Who can help a student with communication problems?</strong></p><p>Parents and teachers play a primary role in developing a child’s communication skills through natural conversation and daily learning situations at home and school. Parents of young children particularly will have a great impact on communication development; the school curriculum is another major force in the development of appropriate communication skills among students. The school speech-language pathologist, who is a specialist in communication disorders, can assist students with communication problems but also provides support and help to parents and teachers. </p><p><strong>Why is language important?</strong></p><p>Language is the primary medium teachers use to instruct students in the classroom. Students require effective communication skills to access the curriculum, to interact socially with others and to effectively participate in the classroom. Academic, social and vocational success is dependent on a student’s ability to understand and express oneself orally and in written language.</p><p>Oral language is the basis for literacy. There is a strong relationship between oral language skills, reading comprehension and literacy development. All young children need learning experiences that help them acquire and understand oral language (The Ontario Ministry of Education&#58; The kindergarten program 1999)</p><p>Language is also related to behaviour problems in children. Weak language predicts a later behaviour disorder. Prevalence of language impairment is 10 times higher in children with behaviour problems than in the general population.</p><p><strong>How does the speech-language pathologist help a child with communication problems?</strong></p><p>In many instances, the most effective programming for communication difficulties will be based in the classroom. The speech-language pathologist often works with the teacher and other school staff to develop classroom strategies to improve language comprehension and expression. In some circumstances speech-language pathologists will provide or supervise individual or small group programs separate from the classroom program. Assessment by the speech-language pathologist will help determine the most appropriate type of intervention.</p><p>By working closely with teachers and special services staff speech-language pathologists collaboratively help to develop effective programs for many children in school.</p><p><strong>How long does a Speech-Language Assessment take?</strong></p><p>It may take one to several weeks depending on the nature of the assessment. Other factors affecting the length of an assessment include the child’s attention and motivation, school activities and the Speech-Language Pathologist’s schedule. Since Speech-Language Pathologists work in several schools in a week, the time to complete an assessment varies. The assessment process is individualized, in a quiet environment outside the regular classroom, and allows for the opportunity to meet the specific needs of each child. If you would like more specific information, please contact the speech-language pathologist assigned to your child’s school. </p><p><strong>What happens after my child’s assessment has been completed?</strong></p><p>The speech-language pathologist who completed the assessment will meet with you to go over the results of the assessment and answer any questions that you have. The SLP also meets with your child’s teacher and any other relevant staff to discuss the results and to develop recommendations designed to provide a more effective program for your child. The results and recommendations are then written up in a formal report.</p><p><strong>Where does the report go?</strong></p><p>The original report is retained in your child’s confidential speech-language pathology file. One copy of the report goes into your child’s Ontario School Record (OSR) to assist educators in developing an effective educational plan. A copy also goes into Central Special Services Files at the Catholic Education Centre. Access to these files is restricted to staff who are involved with your child’s educational program. If you wish, a copy of our report will be provided to you. </p> http://www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/special-education/support-services/speech-language-services/frequently-asked-questions8/31/2019 6:17:43 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Services OfferedSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:17:42 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p>What services are available for my child?</p><p>The school based SLP provides a wide range of support to students experiencing speech, language and communication difficulties within the school setting.

The purpose of these modules is to&#160;guide&#160;students&#160;through the latest version of the virtual learning enviroenment.&#160; Once completed, students will be provided access to their online credit course.&#160; The course will run the length of a semester.&#160; Exams are&#160;proctored and written in the students home school during exam week.&#160; Your&#160;school will courier the exam back to the online teacher for marking.&#160; </p><p> <strong>How are your courses selected?<br></strong>Currently, our courses were selected based on low enrollment.&#160; These courses are not being offered in many of our schools because of low enrollment numbers.&#160; By offering these courses to all schools in our board, we may draw upon these small numbers and as a result, offer the course.</p><p> <strong>I do not have a networked computer at home.&#160; Does that mean I cannot take an online course?<br></strong>No. Although students are responsible for attaining technological accessibility outside of school, students will have access to a networked computer during their scheduled online period.&#160; Although a student is expected to work on their online course 5-12 hours a week, much of this work can be done &quot;offline&quot;.&#160; You must be online to view content, hand in work, participate in all discussion forms, and contact your teacher should you have any questions.&#160; Many students also make arrangements to work from their local library if a networked computer is unavailable in their home.&#160;</p><p> <strong>How much time is required for an online course?</strong><br>Typically, students are required to spend 5 to 12 hours per week on their online course. </p><p> <strong>Who are my supports?<br></strong>Your online teacher is your main support and may be emailed through your course system if you have any questions about your course.&#160; In your home school, your guidance counsellor may also be able to assist you.&#160; If you are having technical difficulty there will be a tech-help line available to you as well.&#160; Lastly, some students post their questions in the classroom forum to seek assistance from their classmates.&#160; </p>http://www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/elearning/faq8/31/2019 6:17:38 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Assessment and EvaluationSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:17:37 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p>In Dufferin-Peel, eLearning courses adhere to the same assessment and evaluation policies and procedures as those that apply to regular face-to-face day courses. These policies and procedures are outlined in the secondary <a href="/Documents/AgendaSummary.pdf" target="_blank">student agenda</a> and align with the Ministry of Ontario’s assessment, evaluation, and reporting document, <em>Growing Success, First Edition, 2010.</em> </p><p>In Dufferin-Peel, the learning process involves a partnership between the student and teacher.</p><p>For this reason, timelines for the submission of assessments for evaluation in eLearning (e.g. assignments, tests, discussions) are established to encourage students to manage their time and to take responsibility for their learning as well as to allow teachers to effectively deliver curriculum, provide timely feedback, as appropriate, and manage the evaluation of assessments.</p><p><strong><br>eLearning students, therefore, are responsible for&#58; </strong></p><ul><li>providing evidence of their learning to their teachers within established timelines;</li><li>understanding that teachers require this evidence to improve student learning and to report on their achievement;</li><li>understanding that there are consequences for late and missed assignments; </li><li>seeking clarification from the teacher (within the LMS), in advance of the established timelines, when encountering difficulties with an assignment; </li><li>contacting the teacher (within the LMS) when experiencing/anticipating difficulty in meeting the established deadlines; </li><li>advising the teacher (within the LMS) in advance of potential conflict with religious accommodations.</li></ul><p><br>Given the above and the nature of the eLearning course, it is critical that the student remain in contact with the teacher on an on-going basis so that the teacher can provide appropriate support, as required. Failure to do so may jeopardize learning and the granting of a credit.</p><p><strong><br>In the event that an assessment is not submitted for evaluation by the due date, the teacher will&#58;</strong></p><ul><li>contact the student (within the LMS) and the parent(s)/guardian(s) to review the circumstances related to the non-submission; </li><li>notify them of the potential consequences (e.g. mark deduction); </li><li>establish a closure date. Note&#58; Summer school online courses - closure dates are typically 48 hours after the designtaed due date. </li><li>If the assignment is submitted by the closure date, a mark deduction up to 10% may apply. </li><li>If the assignment is not submitted by the closure date, a mark deduction up to the full value of the assignment (a zero) may apply.</li></ul> <br> <p> <strong>Student Absences during the Formal Exam Period</strong> </p><p>A student who is absent from a scheduled exam due to illness will provide a medical note to verify that absence; otherwise, a mark of zero will be assigned. </p><p>If it has been determined that a student’s absence is as a result of a skip/truancy, a mark of zero will be assigned. </p><p>A student who is absent from a scheduled exam due to a vacation will be assigned a mark of zero. Formal exam days are published well in advance and permission to write final exams outside of the designated dates/schedule will not be granted. <br></p>http://www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/elearning/assessment-and-evaluation8/31/2019 6:17:37 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Student QuestionnaireSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:17:36 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p>Students who are considering taking an online course are asked to conduct the questionnaire below prior to completing the registration form.

All online students are expected to adhere to the eLearning guidelines listed below. </p><p>The eLearning guidelines are as follows&#58; </p><ul><li>When using the LMS, only access sites which are appropriate for use in your course. <br><br></li><li>Be aware that your actions within the learning management system can be seen and monitored. The Learning Management System (LMS) will automatically keep track of your login, the IP address of the machine you are working on, and the total time logged in for each session. <br><br></li><li>Be aware that information on an Internet web site may be inaccurate or biased. Try to verify the information using other sources, if possible, before using it. <br><br></li><li>Be careful of what you say to others and how you say it. Never give your name, home address, telephone numbers or any personal information (i.e. physical description or school) about yourself or others to any strangers you write to or communicate with on the Internet. Never arrange to meet strangers who approach you whilst on the computer; anyone can pretend to be someone else. Someone pretending to be a friend may not have your best interests at heart. <br><br></li><li>Be respectful to all those within the LMS. You must not seek or send images, sounds, or messages which might be considered inappropriate, obscene, abusive, offensive, harassing, illegal, or counsel to illegal activities. <br><br></li><li>Keep your password private. You will not share your login and password with others, nor attempt to learn or use logins and passwords which are not your own. <br><br></li><li>Back-up and save all of your work. <br><br></li><li>Immediately report to a teacher of any message or request which is received or encountered that makes you feel uncomfortable while using the Internet or communication tools within the LMS. <br><br></li><li>Respect copyright and trademarks. You cannot use the words or pictures that you see on an Internet site without giving credit to the person who produced the information originally. You must not copy text or pictures from the Internet and hand it in to your teacher as your own work. <br><br></li><li>Avoid spamming and the use or propagating chain letters and other e-mail debris. <br><br></li><li>Maintain responsibility for meeting all personal deadlines regardless of network availability. <br><br></li><li>Always log out and close your browser when your session has finished. <br><br></li><li>Notify your online teacher if you must be absent for an extended period of time or wish to withdraw from the online course.</li></ul> http://www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/elearning/elearningguide8/31/2019 6:17:35 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Desktop GuidelinesSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:17:34 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p>Online students will have access to a computer at school during their assigned period.

Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic NotificationSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:17:33 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p><strong>Notification for Parents/Guardians of Students Requesting a Dufferin-Peel Online Course</strong></p><p>Dear Parents/Guardians</p><p>Before signing the registration form, please carefully review and discuss the following points with your son/daughter. </p><p>Students may gain a variety of benefits from online courses. They promote flexibility in the school day, allow for a student to make up coursework, and provide experience in the emerging field of online education that is becoming part of post secondary education (colleges and universities). A major factor of student success is that students are or become a completely self-sufficient learner. <b>Online courses are not appropriate for every student.</b></p><p>A student will receive instruction and feedback via the online course instructor, meet classmates via online discussion board, and complete class assignments independently by appropriate due dates. Your child must make a commitment to participate <b>daily</b> or as required by the online instructor. Attendance will be tracked on the basis of regular participation in the online course. Courses typically require approximately 5 to 12 hours of work every week, and will run the entire duration of the semester. Students taking online courses during the summer can expect to spend the same duration of time on their courses as those taking regular summer school courses. </p><p>Students in an online course do not meet face-to-face. Student self motivation and self reliance are even more critical in an environment where there is no face-to-face contact. Dufferin-Peel online teachers are located at various secondary schools and may not be in the same school as your son/daughter. The online teacher provides the instructional support and assistance for their online courses. The home school can provide guidance services for the online students. Support for technological difficulties will be provided through a tech-help line in the learning management system.</p><p>Online students will have access to a computer at school during their assigned period. It is a student’s responsibility to arrange for the proper technology outside of school. Most online courses require a computer with high speed internet, speakers, word processing capabilities, and video streaming capabilities. Most standard software applications used in these online courses are standard to the common user. </p><p>There is a mandatory in-person orientation session just prior to the start of a students online course. Parents/Guardians are also welcome to attend this one hour evening session. This may be the only opportunity for the online teacher and students to meet face-to-face. Students must arrange for their own transportation to this orientation session. At that time, students will meet their teacher and shown how to access the course and create their username and password. Students unable to attend this orientation session should advise their guidance counsellor. </p><p>The course for which your child is enrolling meets the same standards as other DPCDSB face-to-face courses and will be calculated in meeting graduation requirements. No indication will appear on a student’s transcript that a particular course was “online”. Like all of the Dufferin-Peel courses there is no fee for students. </p><p>In summary, these are the considerations for Parents/Guardians of online students&#58;</p><ul><li>Discuss the nature and issues of an online learning environment </li><li>Take the opportunity to review the course outline, course expectations and time lines </li><li>Help establish a good work/study area at home </li><li>Help set up a regular work/study schedule<br><br></li></ul>http://www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/elearning/notification8/31/2019 6:17:33 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic New to Special EducationSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:17:32 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p> <strong>Below are a few Frequently Asked Questions...</strong></p><ol><li>What is an<a href="/programs-services/special-education/special-education-report/individual-education-plan-iep"> IEP</a>?</li><li>What is an <a href="/programs-services/special-education/special-education-report/identification-placement-and-review-committee-iprc-process">IPRC</a>?</li><li>What is <a href="/programs-services/special-education/special-education-report/early-identification-and-interventions">Early Identification</a>?</li><li>What does that <a href="/programs-services/special-education/special-education-report/special-education-placements-provided-by-the-board">acronym</a> mean? </li><li>Is there anyone in the<a href="/programs-services/special-education/ministry-other-links/outside-agencies"> community</a> who can give us more support?</li></ol><p>Should you have any specific questions, please direct them to the home school.</p><p>&#160;</p>http://www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/special-education/parents-corner/new-to-special-education8/31/2019 6:17:32 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Secondary School RegistrationSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:17:31 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<h2>???????????????????????????????Secondary School&#160;Registration (Grades 9-12)</h2><p> <br>Under provincially legislated Open Access, students of both Separate (Catholic) School and&#160;Public School Supporters may attend Catholic secondary schools, subject to the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board's&#160;admissions requirements.&#160;&#160;</p><p><strong>Note&#58;</strong></p><ul><li> <strong>If your child is already enrolled in a DPCDSB elementary school</strong>, they will be?? automatically enrolled in their local Catholic secondary school for Grade 9.<br><br></li><li><strong></strong><strong><span class="ms-rteThemeForeColor-9-0">The Online Application Form will not be available from August 26 to September 13.

SLPs have specialized knowledge and skills in speech, language and communication development and disorders, and are key members of interdisciplinary education (school) teams.</p><p>In the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board - children with special needs, including those with communication difficulties, are helped through a team approach. Parents, teachers and special services staff participate in planning and programming for students with speech and language difficulties. As a member of the special services team, the speech-language pathologist provides assistance to students with communication problems that may affect school performance.</p><p>There is a staff member from Speech-Language Pathology Services assigned to each school. If you have concerns or questions, they are available to discuss them with you. To reach the professional assigned to your child’s school, contact the school to speak with the principal or call the school to leave a message for the speech-language pathologist at your child’s school.</p><p>The uniqueness of each child is reflected in his or her communication; the spoken and unspoken words and gestures that reveal identity, relationships, experiences, aspirations, concerns, ideas and innovations. Pope Francis reminds us that “communication is about realizing that we are all human beings, children of God” (Message of Pope Francis for the 48th World Communications Day; Vatican, Jan. 24 2014). In our Catholic communities we envision the learner as an effective communicator (Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations, Institute for Catholic Education, 2011) and work diligently to support this outcome for every student.</p><p>As technology becomes more and more present in our lives, “screen time” has begun to dominate leisure time and social interactions for some children. What does this mean for the development of children’s communication skills? <br> <br> <img alt="Speech and Hearing Month Logo" src="/PublishingImages/Pages/Speech-Language-Services/SpeechandHearingMonth.gif" style="max-width&#58;100%;" /></p><p>This month the Speech and Language Department and Hearing Department will share the following resources&#58;<br></p><ul><li> <a href="/Documents/MayMonthArticle2016ScreenTimeandTalkTimeConsiderat.pdf" target="_blank">Screen Time and Talk Time - Considerations for Families</a></li><li> <a href="/Documents/MayMonthArticle201650ScreenFreeActivitiesFINAL.pdf" target="_blank">‘Unplug’ &amp; Communicate&#58; 50 Screen-Free Activities to Promote Social Skills &amp; Interaction </a></li><li> <a href="http&#58;//prezi.com/hgdj00fe0ogu/?utm_campaign=share&amp;utm_medium=copy&amp;rc=ex0share" target="_blank">Keys to Success in Protecting your Hearing (prezi)</a></li></ul> <br> <p>Stay tuned for these helpful articles and presentations!

For more detailed information on Provincial attendance expectations please click here.</p><p> <strong>What does it mean when I sign consent?</strong></p><p>Your consent allows for social work service including direct involvement with you and your child as well access to information contained in the Ontario Student Record (OSR). Consent is valid from the date you sign it until the end of the current school year. Information you share is kept confidential and is not accessed by any other party without your express consent. At the end of the school year a brief summary report is written outlining social work involvement and recommendations. Like all other personal information collected by your School Social Worker, these reports are confidential and can only be accessed with your written consent in accordance with PHIPA and Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers requirements. </p><p> <strong>Who will be involved with my child?</strong> </p><p>In an effort to get a full understanding of how your child is functioning it may be necessary to speak with those who work most directly with your child such as your child’s classroom teacher, school administrator, guidance counselor or other school team members. </p><p> <strong>What happens to information I share with my School Social Worker?</strong> </p><p>All Information shared with your School Social Worker is kept confidential unless express consent is provided to disclose this information to other parties. When your child meets with the School Social Worker, he/she will be assured privacy. </p><p>In situations where information shared indicates that a child or others may be put at risk, all Dufferin-Peel employees are required to report to the appropriate authority. </p><p> <strong>When do I call my School Social Worker?</strong></p><p>Your School Social Worker is available to consult on any issue that may be of concern and to assess whether further intervention is warranted. </p><p>Click here for a list of <a href="/programs-services/special-education/support-services/social-work/issues-affecting-students">issues affecting students and families</a>.</p>http://www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/special-education/support-services/social-work/faqs-parents8/31/2019 6:17:24 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Community ConnectionsSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:17:23 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p>There are times when the needs of students and families require service beyond the school.

To provide the best program for your child, his/her teacher may have tried different teaching strategies and approaches. If these strategies are not producing the desired results, a parent, or the teacher may request a psychological assessment through the school principal. A psychological assessment helps you and the teacher better understand your child’s learning styles, academic skills, behaviour patterns, or emotional development. This information can be used to develop additional strategies to help your child reach his/her potential.</p><p> <strong>Who will assess my child?</strong></p><p>All members of our psychology staff have specialized post graduate training in child and adolescent development, learning processes, emotional development, and psychological health. Each of our staff are assigned to work in several schools, and are able to develop positive working relationships with each school staff. Our goal is to work together with teachers, parents, and other members of the school special services team (e.g., special education resource teacher, speech and language pathologist, social worker, etc.) to help students in their schools. </p><p> <strong>What is involved in a psychological assessment?</strong></p><p>The first step involves explaining to the parent or legal guardian the reasons for the assessment, and getting written permission to proceed. </p><p>Once we have received your permission to proceed, information is gathered from many sources including&#58;</p><ul><li>discussions with teachers, parents, and special services staff </li><li>information from other professionals outside of the school Board who the family feels will have relevant information, is obtained with written parental permission </li><li>observation of the student in the classroom with their peers </li><li>discussion with the student regarding areas of strengths and difficulties </li><li>observations made during the assessment process regarding the student’s approach to a variety of tasks, and problem solving styles </li><li>administration of a number of tests which may include&#58; measures of intellectual ability, evaluation of reading, writing and mathematics skills, memory, learning styles, and emotional development.</li></ul><p>The psychological assessment is done with your child on an individual basis. Before giving any test, we take the time to get to know your child, and to explain why we are meeting with them. It has been our experience that most students find the assessment interesting and enjoyable.</p><p> <strong>How do I prepare my child for the assessment?</strong></p><p>The first step is for both you and your child to have a positive attitude toward the assessment. Children usually enjoy the testing as the tasks are interesting and challenging, and the child has the undivided attention of an adult, who provides a great deal of support and encouragement. Even after the assessment has been completed, many students ask if they can come back and continue the testing process. Parental support in the process is very important. Parents can explain the need for testing by saying something like&#58;</p><p>“You know that we have been talking about your problems with reading, Mr. Smith from the psychology department, will begin working with you to find out what will help you to learn to read better.”</p><p>or</p><p>“The nice thing about doing these tests, is that there is nothing you have to study or prepare for. On these tests, you don’t pass or fail, they give information that helps teachers understand the best ways to help students learn.”</p><p> <strong>Will my child feel singled out?</strong></p><p>Students do not usually feel singled out. Psychology staff are seen as part of the school staff, and are visible in the school. In every classroom there are a number of students who leave the class for parts of their program, for a variety of different reasons.</p><p> <strong>How long does a psychological assessment take?</strong></p><p>Students are usually seen over several sessions to avoid fatigue and to allow for optimal performance. The assessment process is individualized and allows for opportunity to meet the specific needs of each child. For example, if a child is distracted or not motivated, the examiner can change tasks or stop the assessment for the day. Since we are working in several schools, the time to complete an assessment may vary. Before we begin to work with a student, we need three to four hours to talk with teachers, parents, review previous reports, look at samples of the students work, and to observe the students in the classroom. A variety of tests are administered, and this can take up to ten hours. It will then take another 3-4 hours to score the tests and to provide feedback to parents, the student, and school staff who work directly with your child. Since we are working with several students simultaneously, it can take from two to four weeks before all phases of the assessment are complete. If you would like more specific information, please contact the psychology staff person assigned to your child’s school. </p><p> <strong>What happens after my child’s assessment has been completed?</strong></p><p>The psychology staff who completed the assessment will meet with you to go over the results of the assessment, and answer any questions that you have. He/she will also meet with your child to share the results with them. We also meet with your child’s teacher and any other relevant staff, to discuss the results and to develop recommendations designed to provide a more effective program for your child. The results and recommendations are then written up in a formal report.</p><p> <strong>Where does the report go?</strong></p><p>The original report is retained in your child’s confidential psychology file. One copy of the report goes into your child’s Ontario School Record (OSR) to assist educators in developing an effective educational plan. A copy also goes into Central Special Services Files at the Catholic Education Centre. Access to these files is restricted to only those staff who are involved with your child’s educational program. If you wish, a copy of our report will be sent to you.</p><p> <strong>Is my child’s information shared with anyone else?</strong> </p><p>Information from a psychological assessment is shared only with those Dufferin-Peel staff members who are involved with your child’s educational program.</p><p>We will not release information about your child to anyone outside the Board, without your written permission.</p><p> <strong>Psychological Assessment</strong></p><p>Psychology staff are available to meet with teachers, principals, and parents regarding any students who are experiencing academic, behavioural, social, or emotional problems. In a typical school year, over 2,000 students within our school Board are referred for psychological services. A few meetings and some discussion may be all that is required to find ways to help some students. In other situations, it may be helpful to obtain more information from a full psychological assessment, and this process is described in the following sections. </p>http://www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/special-education/support-services/psychology/psychological-assessments8/31/2019 6:17:15 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic PsychologySat, 31 Aug 2019 10:17:14 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p>School psychologists work to find the best solution for each student and situation and use different strategies to address student needs and to improve school and district-wide support systems.</p><p>They work together with teachers, parents, children and adolescents, to understand, prevent, and solve problems, and to promote mental health and effective environments for learning.</p><p>They also develop programs to train teachers and parents regarding effective teaching and learning strategies, effective techniques to manage behaviour at home and in the classroom, working with students with disabilities or with special talents, abuse of drugs and other substances, and preventing and managing crises.<br><br>There is a staff member from Psychology Department assigned to each school.&#160; If you have concerns or questions, they are available to discuss them with you.

The work of Child and Youth Workers is based in relationship with and advocacy on behalf of young people and, consequently, the workplace of Child and Youth Workers has been in the settings where children and youth experiencing difficulty receive support&#58; family homes, residential treatment settings, child welfare agencies, group homes, hospitals, mental health clinics, recreational programs, camps, correctional settings, probation services, and schools. </p><p> <strong>Training</strong> <br> <br>Training for Child and Youth Work in Ontario occurs at both the college and university level and draws its theoretical underpinnings from a broad range of disciplines including psychology, counselling, social work, nursing, education, and recreation. Curriculum addresses child development, theories of learning and personality, abnormal psychology, group theory, family dynamics, counselling theory, milieu therapy, research, ethics and professional issues. A key requirement of training for Child and Youth Work is supervised experiential learning through practicum placements in a variety of settings serving children and youth. </p><p> <strong>Essential Attributes</strong> <br> <br>The cornerstone of Child and Youth Work practice is relationship. Consequently, there is an imperative for Child and Youth Workers to become skilful in actively engaging young people, to become effective listeners and communicators, to be accepting of young people without being judgemental, to be sufficiently professionally focussed and self-aware to ensure objectivity in addressing client issues, and to be committed to providing purposeful interventions which help increase a young person’s sense of capability and competence. </p><p> <strong>Child and Youth Work in Schools</strong> <br> <br>Within school settings, Child and Youth Workers contribute to the provision of a spectrum of services. They do so in partnership with teachers, parents, and other support services personnel. In addition, they may work in collaboration with other agencies and services outside of the school. Their work usually focusses on behavioural concerns related to students. It is through behaviour that students give expression to their perceptions and needs and it is through interaction with them that Child and Youth Workers seek to provide support. Interaction may take the form of individual counselling, behaviour management, social or life skill instruction, group involvement, activity involving sport, drama, or music, or in-class academic and social support. </p><p> <strong>Preventative Programs</strong> <br> <br>Behavioural concerns in schools may relate to individual students or may be more global in scope. Schools are concerned with issues of safety, security, academic and social climate, and community. The behaviour which people in schools display toward one another impacts dramatically on all of these domains. Child and Youth Workers are committed and skilled in supporting classroom and school-wide programs which foster safe and healthy school climates. Examples of these programs are conflict resolution, class-wide social skills, anger management, bullying prevention, friendship-building, violence prevention. Child and Youth Workers also contribute to in-service staff training related to crisis intervention, behaviour management, conflict resolution, and PDD/Autism. </p><p> <strong>Child and Youth Work Roles <br></strong> <br>The model of school-based Child and Youth Work practiced in Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board utilizes Child and Youth Workers in a range of roles providing both preventative and intervention services. All contained behavioural class programs are staffed by teacher / CYW teams. Elementary schools have Child and Youth Workers assigned on a school-wide basis to assist in addressing behavioural issues within the student population and also in providing intensive support to high need behavioural students. Secondary schools are assigned Child and Youth Workers who provide behavioural services through Guidance Departments or who support high need students in Planning for Independence Programs or within the general student body. Students with significant need for behavioural support arising from Pervasive Developmental Disorder / Autism receive CYW support through staffing of contained classroom programs and also through support available from board-based teams composed of a teacher and a Child and Youth Worker. </p><p> <strong>Partners in Teamwork</strong> <br> <br>Child and Youth Workers rely on a team process in identifying and assessing student need and in providing support services to students. Teachers, parents, or school administrators may identify students who are struggling academically, socially, emotionally, or behaviourally in school, or students may self-identify. In the best of circumstances, assessment of student need has the benefit of input from the multi-disciplinary team which includes the teacher, administrator, special education support staff including educational assistants, psychology, speech and language, social work, and child and youth work staff. Combining the expertise of these service providers with the insights of parents, medical practitioners, other community service workers and students themselves optimizes the likelihood that students will receive appropriate help. </p><p> <strong>Processes That Guide Child and Youth Work</strong> <br> <br>Intervention with students on the part of Child and Youth Workers is guided by on-going assessment and consultation with others who are involved with the student. Interdisciplinary consultation, school team meetings, case conferences, and I.P.R.C.s provide tools for developing pathways to support for students in need. Individual education plans provide a blueprint for services to be provided. These processes and tools help shape the work of Child and Youth Workers. </p><p> <strong>Allocation of Child and Youth Workers <br> <br></strong>Child and Youth Workers are allocated to roles in either the Program Department of the Board or in one of the Families of Schools. Assignment to specific school settings within a Family of Schools is the responsibility of the Family of Schools Superintendent. School principals provide administrative supervision of C.Y.W’s.</p><p> <strong>Accessing Child and Youth Work Services</strong> <br> <br>Child and Youth Work services can be accessed through school administrators or school teams. </p><p> <br>&#160;</p>http://www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/special-education/support-services/child-and-youth-work/our-story8/31/2019 6:17:13 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Hiring CriteriaSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:17:12 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p> <strong>Education<br></strong>Minimum Community College Diploma in Child and Youth Work.</p><p> <strong>Experience</strong><br>Minimum of three years practice experience following graduation from Child and Youth Work Program.</p><p>Minimum of two years of practice experience following graduation from Child and Youth Work Program <br>if practice experience or related experience has been within an educational system.</p><p> <strong>Other</strong> <br>Membership in the Ontario Association of Child and Youth Workers an asset.</p><p>Child and Youth Workers employed by the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board are expected to adhere to the Code of Ethics of the Ontario Association of Child and Youth Counsellors. </p><p> <strong>Unsolicited Resumes</strong><br>Will be kept on file in the Support Services Section of the Human Resources Department for a period of six months. </p><p>&#160;</p>http://www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/special-education/support-services/child-and-youth-work/hiring-criteria8/31/2019 6:17:12 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Child and Youth WorkSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:17:11 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p>Child and Youth Work staff members provide assistance to students who are faced with social, emotional, behavioural, and developmental challenges.

They may be studied at either higher level or standard level. <br><br><strong>Latin or Classical Greek</strong> coursework provides opportunities for students to study the language, literature and culture of ancient Rome or Greece.</p><h4> <br>Group 3&#58; Individuals and Societies</h4><p> <strong>Business and Management, Economics, Geography, History, Information Technology in a Global Society, Philosophy, Psychology, Social and Cultural Anthropology, Global Politics, World Religions.</strong></p><h4> <br>Group 4&#58; Sciences</h4><p> <strong>Biology,&#160; Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, Design Technology, Environmental Systems, Sports, Exercise and Health Science, and Societies</strong> (this course meets the group 3 and group 4 requirements).<br><br>All of these subjects can be studied at the Higher or Standard Level.</p><h4> <br>Group 5&#58; Mathematics</h4><p>Students must study at least one course in<strong> Mathematics.<br></strong><br>Mathematics courses include&#58; <strong>Mathematical Studies</strong> at Standard Level, <strong>Mathematics</strong> at Standard Level, <strong>Mathematics</strong> at Higher Level, and <strong>Further Mathematics</strong> at Higher Level. </p><h4> <br>Group 6&#58; The Arts</h4><p> <strong>Dance, Film, Music, Theatre, Visual Arts&#58;</strong> These subjects may be studied at Higher Level or Standard Level. </p><p> <br> <strong>NOTE&#58;&#160;<em> Students are required to choose one subject from each of the six academic areas, including one from Group 6 although instead of a group 6 subject they can choose a second from Groups 1 – 5.</em></strong><br><br>The programme offers special features in addition to the strengths of a liberal arts curriculum.</p><ul><li> <strong>Theory of Knowledge (TOK)</strong> is a required interdisciplinary course intended to stimulate critical reflection upon the knowledge and experience gained inside and outside the classroom. Theory of Knowledge seeks to develop a coherent approach to learning which transcends and unifies the academic subjects and encourages appreciation of other cultural perspectives. <br><br> </li><li> <strong>Creativity, Action, Service (CAS)</strong> is a fundamental part of the diploma curriculum. The goal of educating the whole and fostering a more compassionate citizenry comes alive in an embedded way when students reach beyond themselves and their books. <br><br> </li><li>Diploma candidates are required to undertake original research and create an <strong>Extended Essay</strong> of some 4,000 words. This project offers the opportunity to investigate a topic of special interest and acquaints students with the kind of independent research and writing skills expected at university. <br></li></ul><p> <br>The grading system used by the International Baccalaureate Organization is criterion referenced. This means that each student’s performance is measured against well-defined levels of achievement consistent from one examination session to the next. Top grades are not simply awarded &quot;on a curve&quot; to a certain percentage of candidates, but rather reflect attainment of knowledge and skills relative to set standards equally applied to all schools. Validity, reliability and fairness are the watchwords of the IBO's international examining board.<br><br><strong>More Information&#58;</strong>&#160; <a href="http&#58;//www.ibo.org/en/programmes/diploma-programme/curriculum/" target="_blank">IB Diploma Programme Curriculum</a><br></p>http://www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/secondary/international-baccalaureate8/31/2019 6:17:05 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Jean Vanier Advantage ProgramSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:17:04 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<h3>?Jean Vanier Advantage Adult (18-21) Education Program</h3><p> <br>The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board offers alternative pathways to school, career and post-secondary destinations through satellite campus settings. </p><p>The Jean Vanier Adult Education Program is for students 18-21 years of age who not yet graduated from secondary school.

Traffic congestion continues to increase in our communities; health and safety of our students are paramount concerns in these times. &#160;Dufferin-Peel has worked with a variety of community partners such as Peel Regional Police, Peel District School Board, Peel Health, Bike Brampton, to promote walking and biking to school with continued momentum. The benefits of walking and physical activity is positively linked to physical and mental health, as well as academic performance. A series of three short videos have been created through this partnership to support the work our schools are doing in helping parents understand the importance of using Kiss’n Ride safely, reducing traffic congestion and finding alternative ways of getting to school.

The Ministry of Education's definition of a Full-Day Kindergarten educator team includes a teacher and a Designated Early Childhood Educator (DECE) in classes where enrollment is more than 15 students.&#160; In classes where enrollment is less than 15 students, the program is delivered by the classroom teacher only. Our valued planning time teachers who offer additional programming in variety of areas in the school are also integral to the program.&#160; Furthermore, a collaborative school team works to support the program, as needed, and includes special education resource teachers, school administrator(s), Child and Youth Workers, Social Workers, Speech and Language Pathologists or Psychologists.&#160; Kindergarten teachers work collaboratively with all staff to complete the Communication of Learning documents that share timely information regarding your child's progress and areas of continued growth.&#160;&#160;</p><p><a href="https&#58;//www3.dpcdsb.org/schools/register-for-school/kindergarten-registration">Registration Information</a><br><br><a href="/Documents/JourneyIntoLearning_Booklet_2017_single_WEB.pdf">Journey Into&#160;Learning&#58; A Parent Guide to Kindergarten</a><br><br><a href="https&#58;//youtu.be/IO4sXQ4uuxg">The Kindergarten Learning Journey&#58; A Parent Guide?</a>&#160;(Video)<br><br><a href="/Documents/2017-18%20Parent%20Tip%20Sheet.pdf">Parent Tips&#58; Preparing your Child for Kindergarten</a><br><br><a href="http&#58;//www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/parents/" target="_blank">Parent Information about Early Learning and Kindergarten&#160;in Ontario</a>&#160; <br><br><a href="http&#58;//www.edu.gov.on.ca/eng/parents/understanding_your_childs_report_en.pdf">A Parent's Guide to Kindergarten Communication&#160;of Learning?&#160;&#160;?</a><br><br><a href="https&#58;//files.ontario.ca/books/edu_the_kindergarten_program_english_aoda_web_oct7.pdf" target="_blank">More information about Kindergarten Curriculum</a><br>?<br><a href="http&#58;//www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/early-years">Early Years Information?</a></p><p><a href="https&#58;//www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UiPDZ5FT4U">Outdoor Learning Space Video 1</a></p><p><a href="https&#58;//www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1MhmmLGdOI">Outdoor Learning Space Video 2</a></p><p><a href="https&#58;//www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEiFwGpo76o">Outdoor Learning Space Video 3</a></p><p><br>&#160;</p><p><strong><a href="http&#58;//www3.dpcdsb.org/schools/child-care-centres" target="_blank">Optional Extended Day Program and Before/After School Child Care for 6-12 year olds</a><br></strong>&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160;&#160; <br>The optional Extended Day Program (for four- and five-year olds) in Dufferin-Peel Catholic schools is provided by three child care agencies&#58; Family Day Care Services, PLASP Child Care Services and YMCA of Greater Toronto.

Trustees serve as system leaders of publically funded education in their communities and province. They work collaboratively with their community to shape a vision for the board that is reflective of the input of parents, students and community members. Trustees advocate for excellence in education and act as role models to engender confidence in publically funded education. In addition, Catholic school trustees have a clearly defined role as stewards and guardians of Catholic education. Two student trustee representatives, elected by their peers, also sit with the board in a non-voting capacity.</p><p>Regular meetings of the board are held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7&#58;00 p.m. in the Catholic Education Centre at 40 Matheson Boulevard West in Mississauga.<br><br><a href="https&#58;//www3.dpcdsb.org/news/board-meetings">Board &amp;

The policy and procedures approach homework from a Catholic perspective that recognizes the importance of family time and honours the bonds between school, family and parish. As a community, we recognize that the stronger these bonds, the more effectively our students are able to learn and to develop the unique talents and gifts with which they are blessed.</p><p>The Homework Policy and Procedures overview is available in the following 13 languages&#58; <br> </p><table class="no-border"><tbody><tr><td><a href="/Documents/2009HomeworkPolicy1.pdf">English</a></td><td><a href="/Documents/2009%20Homework%20Policy%20-%20ARABIC.pdf">Arabic</a></td><td><a href="/Documents/2009%20Homework%20Policy%20-%20FRENCH.pdf">French</a></td></tr><tr><td><a href="/Documents/2009%20Homework%20Policy%20-%20KOREAN.pdf">Korean</a></td><td><a href="/Documents/2009%20Homework%20Policy%20-%20MALAYAN.pdf">Malayan</a></td><td><a href="/Documents/2009%20Homework%20Policy%20-%20POLISH.pdf">Polish</a></td></tr><tr><td><a href="/Documents/2009%20Homework%20Policy%20-%20PORTUGUESE.pdf">Portuguese</a></td><td><a href="/Documents/2009%20Homework%20Policy%20-%20PUNJABI.pdf">Punjabi</a></td><td><a href="/Documents/2009%20Homework%20Policy%20-%20SIMP%20CHINESE.pdf">Chinese</a></td></tr><tr><td><a href="/Documents/2009%20Homework%20Policy%20-%20SPANISH.pdf">Spanish</a></td><td><a href="/Documents/2009%20Homework%20Policy%20-%20TAGALOG.pdf">Tagalog</a></td><td><a href="/Documents/2009%20Homework%20Policy%20-%20URDU.pdf">Urdu</a></td></tr><tr><td><a href="/Documents/2009%20Homework%20Policy%20-%20YORUBA.pdf">Yoruba</a></td></tr></tbody></table><p>&#160;</p>http://www3.dpcdsb.org/parents/help-your-child-learn/homework-policy8/31/2019 6:16:21 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Privacy PolicySat, 31 Aug 2019 10:16:20 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<span id="HtmlPlaceholderControl1"><p>The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board is committed to respecting your privacy and protecting your personal information.

This Christian anthropology or world view, reveals the dignity and value of the person. Our tradition tells us God creatively and lovingly calls each of us into the wonder of life, sustaining us by the power of the Holy Spirit, throughout the human journey, into life eternal. We acknowledge that the journey includes moments of brokenness and sin. </p><p>We recognize in the person of Jesus, the risen Christ, the human face of God sharing our life in order to heal us of our brokenness and liberate us from sin. This Christian vision of the human journey is best understood within the context of relationship. It is accomplished in community, in solidarity with brothers and sisters in the Church and beyond.<br></p><p>Catholic education views human life as an integration of body, mind, and spirit. Rooted in this vision, Catholic education fosters the search for knowledge as a lifelong spiritual and academic quest. The expectations of Catholic graduates, therefore, are described not only in terms of knowledge and skills, but in terms of values, attitudes and actions.<br>&#160;</p><h3>Vision of the Learner <br></h3><p> <b> <br>The Graduate is expected to be&#58;</b></p><ul><li> <b>A discerning believer</b> formed in the Catholic Faith community who celebrates the signs and sacred mystery of God's presence through word, sacrament, prayer, forgiveness, reflection and moral living. </li><li> <b>An effective communicator</b> who speaks, writes and listens honestly and sensitively, responding critically in light of gospel values. </li><li> <b>A reflective, creative and holistic thinker</b> who solves problems and makes responsible decisions with an informed moral conscience for the common good. </li><li> <b>A self-directed, responsible, lifelong learner</b> who develops and demonstrates their God-given potential. </li><li> <b>A collaborative contributor</b> who finds meaning, dignity and vocation in work which respects the rights of all and contributes to the common good. </li><li> <b>A caring family member</b> who attends to family, school, parish, and the wider community. </li><li> <b>A responsible citizen</b> who gives witness to Catholic social teaching by promoting peace, justice and the sacredness of human life.</li></ul><ol> <br> <p> <b>1.

They provide a forum through which parents and other members of school communities can contribute to improving student achievement and school performance.</p><p>In 2000-2001, the Ontario government took significant steps to ensure that parents, through their school councils, would have greater influence in their children’s education. Regulations were created that confirm the advisory role of school councils and clearly state that their purpose is to improve student achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents. </p><p>School councils are now able to make recommendations to their principals and school boards on any matter. Principals and school boards, in turn, must consult with school councils on a variety of matters that affect student learning. They must also consider recommendations made by school councils and report back to the councils on how they plan to act.</p><p>For more information about school councils, download&#160;<a href="/Documents/2006SchoolCouncilBrochure.pdf" target="_blank"><a href="/Documents/Postcard%20CSC%20Get%20Involved.pdf" style="text-decoration-line&#58;underline;">Get Involved in your local Catholic School Council</a>?&#160;</a>or visit <a href="http&#58;//www.hhly104.com/CCCSC" target="_blank">Central Committee for Catholic School Councils (CCCSC)</a>.<br><br></p><ul><li><a href="/Documents/Every%20Council%20needs%20an%20OAPCE%20rep.pdf">Letter from OAPCE&#58; Every Council Needs an OAPCE Representative (September 12, 2018)</a><br></li><li><a href="/Documents/OAPCE%20brochure%202018%2019.pdf">Ontario&#160;Association of&#160;Parents in&#160;Catholic Education Brochure</a><br></li><li>?<a href="/Documents/CCCSC%20dates%202018%202019%20FINAL.pdf" style="text-decoration-line&#58;underline;">CCCSC Calendar for 2018-2019</a>?<br></li></ul><br>?<a href="/Documents/Postcard%20CSC%20Get%20Involved.pdf" style="text-decoration-line&#58;underline;">Get Involved in your local Catholic School Council</a><br><img src="/PublishingImages/Pages/getting-involved/Postcard%20CSC%20Get%20Involved-1.jpg" alt="Postcard CSC Get Involved-1.jpg" style="margin&#58;5px;" />?<br><br><p></p>http://www3.dpcdsb.org/parents/getting-involved/school-councils/school-councils8/31/2019 6:16:07 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Student Accident InsuranceSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:16:06 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p> <strong>Important notice to parents/ guardians regarding insurance for students who participate in out-of-school excursions and extra-curricular sports activities.</strong>&#160;&#160;</p><p>The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board takes every precaution to provide a safe learning environment for students, however accidents can happen.&#160;&#160; When they do, injuries may involve medical, dental or other expenses that are not covered by provincial health care or employer group plans.

The school sent this information to Peel Public Health. After registration, parents are responsible to keep their child’s immunization record up to date with Peel Public Health. Your child’s record may still be incomplete if the record you submitted at registration did not show that your child has had all the required vaccines, or if your child has become due for another vaccine since then.<br><br>Under the Immunization of School Pupils Act, the Health Department has the authority to suspend students from school if they do not meet the immunization requirements. Therefore students whose immunization records are incomplete will be suspended from school.<br><br><strong>For immunization information for students in the Region of Peel, visit </strong><a href="http&#58;//www.peelregion.ca/immunize"><strong>www.peelregion.ca/immunize</strong></a><strong> or for students in Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph, visit </strong><strong><a href="file&#58;///C&#58;/Users/68116/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/Temporary%20Internet%20Files/Content.Outlook/L4W9JJA7/www.immunizewdg.ca/">www.immunizewdg.ca</a>.</strong><strong></strong><br></p><h4><br></h4><p><br></p>http://www3.dpcdsb.org/parents/immunization-records/immunization-records8/31/2019 6:16:06 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Help Your Child LearnSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:16:04 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p>We believe that parents/guardians are the primary teachers of their children.

The board’s jurisdiction extends throughout the municipalities of Mississauga, Brampton, Bolton, Caledon, Orangeville and Dufferin County. Dufferin-Peel is one of the largest and fastest growing school boards in Ontario.</p><h4>Philosophy of Education</h4><p>In 2003, the Board of Trustees adopted the following Philosophy of Education&#58;&#160;<br><br>It is the goal of the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board to assist each child to grow in the Image of Christ and to develop all of his/her potentialities to serve man and thereby serve God. Under this Philosophy of Education, the Board endorses the following aims&#58; </p><ol><li>That the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board supports the principle of Catholic education in its system from Junior Kindergarten to completion of a secondary school education for all students; </li><li>To provide the conditions for a Catholic learning environment; </li><li>To provide the necessities for educating children in its schools to the degree established by the Board, and supported by provincial revenues. </li><li>To enable children to develop their individual aptitudes and to acquire skills essential to living in a contemporary changing society, and to ensure their proper physical and mental health; </li><li>To encourage in children the desire to learn so as to understand better God's world; </li><li>To provide every pupil with the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. </li><li>To work and learn together as equals in a respectful, non-threatening environment is <br>the right of all and fundamental to our Catholic philosophy. </li></ol><h4>Catholic Traditions</h4><p>The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board includes the teaching of religion, family life, the practice of prayer and worship, and the presence of Gospel values in the curriculum and daily life in the schools. Schools have strong links to parishes and assist parishes with sacramental preparation. Parish staff conduct liturgies and provide other services within the schools. The Catholic school system maintains strong links between the home, school and church, and parental participation in the education of students is highly encouraged. These links provide for a natural reinforcement and development of Christian values in the Catholic tradition.<br>&#160;</p><h4>Our Community of Schools</h4><p>The Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board is one of the largest and most diverse school districts in Ontario with approximately 81,000 students&#160;attending 151&#160;schools (125? elementary and 26 secondary) located throughout Mississauga, Brampton, Caledon and Orangeville.

We strive to ensure that each school and board facility is a safe, caring, healthy and inclusive place, where each student has every opportunity to succeed.</p><p>At Dufferin-Peel, our goal is to provide quality Catholic education, which teaches students necessary life skills and prepares them for post-secondary education, the workplace, and for their role as responsible citizens. Our staff is among our greatest resources. The people we hire have a direct impact on the success of our students.

Consistent with last year's performance, 87% of DPCDSB students taking Grade 9 academic mathematics achieved or exceeded the provincial standard. One half of students taking Grade 9 applied mathematics met or exceeded the provincial standard in 2017-2018. This proportion represents a decline compared to the previous assessment year. Consequently, the board continues to focus on improving achievement among students taking applied mathematics, so that many more of these students can meet or exceed the provincial standard in this important subject area in the near future.?<br><br></p><h2>School Results<br><br> </h2><p>Below are the 2017-2018 Grade 9 mathematics EQAO reports for secondary schools, categorized by family of schools.<br><br><a href="/Documents/2017%2018%20EQAO%20Grade%209%20Mathematics%20Report%20for%20DPCDSB.pdf">2017-18 EQAO Grade 9 Mathematics Report for DPCDSB</a><br> </p><p><em>Please note that St. Oscar Romero Catholic S.S. offers an Alternative Secondary Program and, depending on the scope of their studies, students may or may not complete the EQAO assessment of mathematics in Grade 9.?</em></p> http://www3.dpcdsb.org/programs-services/eqao/grade-9-math-results/grade-9-math-results8/31/2019 6:15:50 AMCatholic High School,Kindergarten, Mississauga Catholic, Brampton Catholic, Caledon Catholic Newcomer CentresSat, 31 Aug 2019 10:15:49 GMT31/08/2019Aug 2019<p>?????? <img alt="NRAC_Final_fullcolour_hiResWeb.jpg" src="/PublishingImages/Pages/Newcomer-Centres/NRAC_Final_fullcolour_hiResWeb.jpg" style="margin&#58;5px;" />&#160;</p><p> <strong>Newcomer Reception &amp; Assessment Centres </strong></p><p>In harmony with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board’s mission, and in partnership with schools, the Newcomer Reception and Assessment Centres provide families and students with a welcoming and supportive introduction to the Ontario school system.

Fundamental to Catholicism is the belief that parents are the primary educators of children and that education is holistic. <br> <br>All elementary students participate in the Religious Education Program (<a href="http&#58;//iceont.ca/publications/" target="_blank">Elementary Religious Education curriculum</a>) and the Family Life Program (<a href="http&#58;//acbo.on.ca/fully-alive/" target="_blank">Ontario Fully Alive Curriculum</a>) written and approved by the Catholic bishops. In elementary schools, the teaching of Religion as a subject discipline occurs daily. Preparation for the sacraments, in collaboration with the local parish, is an integral part of the Grade 2 and Grade 8 curriculum. In secondary schools, students enroll in one Religion course (whose curriculum is set by the Ontario Bishops (<a href="http&#58;//iceont.ca/publications/" target="_blank">Secondary Religion program</a>) in each of the four years. The Religion and Family Life Programs are intended to provide instruction in the faith and the skills needed for moral decision making. These are life skills which will serve our students long after their formal education has been completed. <br> <br>Perhaps what most distinguishes a Catholic school from that of others is its broad curriculum. All subjects in Catholic schools (and all activities) are taught from the perspective of faith. At its core, curriculum in any subject reveals fundamental beliefs and values about the nature, task and specific character of the educational enterprise. It presupposes and involves a definite understanding of what it means to be human, of how to live together, and the wisdom necessary to sustain life on this planet. Indeed, in its broadest sense, Catholic curriculum is a worldview shaped by the Catholic conversation about life’s meaning and purpose. Education that is Catholic, analyses all truth and knowledge (literature, history, geography, science, technology, mathematics) through the lens of faith. <br> <br>For the Catholic Church, education is not just about the transmission of knowledge and the acquiring of skills and tools for success in life. While a Catholic education does include formal religious education classes, as outlined above, it is so much more. It includes the open expression and celebration of faith and opportunities for a relationship with God through the entire syllabus of the school. <br> <br>Day retreats are compulsory in each of the four years of secondary school. In addition, Grade 2 and 8 students usually participate in a retreat. A retreat is a time away from the routine of the regular schedule. Students are led through activities and reflections which allow them to think more deeply about who they are as human beings. <br> <br>Prayers, liturgy and religious celebrations are integrated into the daily schedule. Together with the pastor, Liturgy of the Eucharist, which is central to Catholicism, is organized according to the seasons of the church year. Each elementary school has an active pastoral program animated by a staff member who is the faith ambassador. Each secondary school integrates prayer and social justice activities organized with the assistance of the full time chaplaincy leader who is available to students in times of joy and crisis. <br> <br>It is a fundamental Catholic belief that parents, parishes and schools co-operate to educate a child to the fullest extent. An educated person, derived from the Latin origin of the word &quot;education&quot;, is a person who is well brought up. When Catholic teachers, convinced of the vision and mission of Catholic education, together with our priests and pastoral staff, work closely with parents and families, a powerful and exciting possibility emerges. <br> <br>Framed by the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations (OCSGE), our graduates will be effective communicators, reflective thinkers, lifelong learners, collaborative contributors, caring family members, responsible citizens and discerning believers formed in the Catholic faith community. </p><p align="left"> <a href="/Documents/OurCatholicSchoolHeritage1.pdf" target="_blank">Our Catholic School Heritage</a><br>Read an historical understanding of issues related to Catholic education in Ontario.
