Your Map of the Provincial School System – A Parent’s Guide to Ontario’s Education System

The Ontario Ministry of Education has recently developed a guide to help parents across the province understand what our education system provides. This resource offers an excellent overview of various practical subjects for all parents. The guide covers several topics, including support for success, evaluating your child’s school performance and the benefits of attending school council or parent involvement committee meetings.

Here are the main sections to expect in the guide.

  1. Public Education
  2. School options for your child
  3. Know what your child is learning
  4. Stay informed about your child’s progress
  5. Safe and accepting schools
  6. Healthy schools
  7. Specialized resources and supports for your child
  8. Giving feedback to your child’s school and board
