On May 22, the board approved the establishment of a committee to develop an Operating Procedure that will include criteria for reviewing requests from individuals and/or groups to raise flags at all Peel District School Board schools and sites. Membership of Flag Raising Operating Procedure Development Committee will include the Chair or Vice-Chair of the Board, Trustee Stan Cameron, Trustee Robert Crocker and appropriate administrative staff.

Trustees receive 2016-17 Graduation Rates report
The five-year Peel board graduation rate is one important factor of the success of secondary students and schools. The overall graduation rate is the ratio of the number of students who earned an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) to the number of students who were in the initial grade 9 cohort. Specifically, the 2016-17 board graduation rate is based on the percentage of students in the 2012-13 grade 9 cohort who successfully completed all the requirements of the OSSD and graduated from any Peel board secondary school within five years. 

To learn more, see section 10.1 of the Regular Meeting of the Board agenda for June 19, 2018.
