Recently, the Ministry of Education announced that the province's Health and Physical Education curriculum from 1998 will be reintroduced in all schools, beginning in September 2018. At this time, school boards are awaiting specific direction from the Ministry of Education and further details, including information on the topics that will be discussed.
At the Peel District School Board, we remain committed to the well-being, safety and success of all students. We will continue to be guided by our unwavering commitment to equity and inclusion in all we do to support students, including our LGBTQ+ students. We have a responsibility, under the Human Rights Code, the Education Act and the board's policies and procedures, and a moral obligation to ensure all students feel safe and included in our school communities.
Should you have any further questions or concerns about the provincial Health and Physical Education curriculum or any planned community consultations, please contact your local Member of Provincial Parliament or the Minister of Education.
