Director's Annual Report

Message from the Director of Education 

It is my pleasure to share the York Region District School Board’s accomplishments from the past year in the Director’s Annual Report. As YRDSB’s newly appointed Director of Education, it is my privilege to work alongside a dedicated team of educators, administrators, staff, Board of Trustees and Senior Leadership Team who strive every day to serve the needs of over 128,000 students across York Region.  

With over 180 elementary schools and 33 secondary schools, York Region District School Board remains committed to fostering welcoming and supportive learning environments for all students. Over the past year, our team of educators, administrators and support staff has worked to create learning environments where students can succeed and excel. As educators worked on delivering high-quality classroom instruction to students, trustees continued to advocate for the priorities identified in the Trustees’ Multi-Year Plan and staff continued to deliver on action items in the Director’s Action Plan. As a result of this work, significant progress has been made in achieving YRDSB’s organizational goals throughout the school year. 

As we reflect on the accomplishments of the past year, we turn our attention to the opportunities that lie ahead. York Region District School Board will continue to provide high quality learning opportunities for all students to ensure their success. I am looking forward to working with the Board of Trustees and Senior Leadership Team to support YRDSB educators and staff in reviewing and achieving the Board’s strategic priorities. I invite you to explore the pages of this report, visit our website, follow us on social media or connect with your local school to learn more about our work.
