For the past 18 years, the Peel District School Board has hosted a parent conference with a focus on a particular curricular area (literacy/numeracy) with a similar format each year.
For the 2019-20 school year, we are revamping the conference from the traditional workshop model to a speaker series model. We will host multiple events throughout the Peel region to ensure these opportunities are more accessible for families.
Each session will feature a keynote speaker focused on a specific topic (e.g. digital citizenship, special education, numeracy, etc.) followed by an audience question and answer period. We will continue to host a small exhibitor space featuring services/resources offered by Peel District School Board and community agencies/groups/organizations.

Peel Elementary Teachers' Local (PETL)
With more than 7,000 members, the ETFO Peel Elementary Teachers' Local is the second-largest teacher local in Canada. As a Local Union, our primary goal is to provide quality service to all public elementary teachers in Peel, as well as offering a wide range of supports and services to our teacher members. Through our commitment to social justice and equity, professional learning opportunities provided for our members enable us to positively impact student learning in Peel schools. We actively support the communities in which we teach, including providing support for the United Way of Peel, and local breakfast programs, while also sponsoring various activities for youth in Peel.
